Ewan Richards has committed his long-term future to Bath Rugby.
The 20-year-old has excelled this season, making 15 senior appearances in either the second row or the back row.
Neal Hatley, Head Coach, said: “Ewan’s outstanding development has been one of the positives this season, and we are delighted he has agreed a long-term contract.
“He is one of a number of young men who have graduated through the club Academy system and gone on to contribute massively this season.
"He has the ability and potential to play a key role in the team for many years to come.”
Richards added: “Growing up supporting Bath, it has been a dream for me to pull on the Blue, Black and White shirt so to have the opportunity to continue to do that is truly an honour.
“Playing for the club means so much to me and my family, and I hope I’ve done them proud.
"I just want to keep learning, play as much as I can and represent Bath to the best of my ability.”
