Cook excited to stay with Bath Rugby

2 February 2015

Chris Cook has extended his contract with Bath Rugby, the Club are delighted to announce.

The Bath Rugby Academy graduate has made the scrum-half shirt his own this season, starting 16 of Bath's games to date, including the victories over Leicester Tigers and Saracens at the Recreation Ground, and Montpellier and Toulouse away in France.

"I'm really excited to be staying at Bath", said 23-year-old Cook. "This is the best place for me to keep developing, with the focus very much on helping young players such as myself to continue improving. There is still a lot of potential to be realised within the squad, and I'm looking forward to being part of it."

The quick-thinking, tenacious number 9 spent much of last season on loan with London Welsh, becoming an integral part of their Championship winning campaign, following on from winning the Aviva A League with Bath United in December 2013.

Mike Ford, Head Coach at Bath, added "Chris has massively come on this season, and we're very pleased he's staying with us. He learnt a lot through the regular game-time he got on loan with London Welsh, came back to us for pre-season eager to impress and earn his place and that's what he's done. He's got an exciting future ahead of him, and we're looking forward to helping him achieve his full potential."
