8 April 2021

Jaco Coetzee has arrived at Bath Rugby!

The 24-year-old’s move to the Rec was announced at the beginning of February and after a period of isolation since making his way over from South Africa, he finally managed to explore Farleigh House.

Coetzee will bring vast experience to Bath along with impressive stopping power and physical play at the breakdown. He has significant attacking capabilities as a destructive ball-carrying Number 8 and will be another exciting option in the back row.

“I’ve finally made it to the UK and I’m finally out of isolation,” the South African said in a video message to Bath supporters on social media.

“I arrived at the Bath training ground (on Wednesday) and I was blown away by how beautiful this place is.

“I’m really excited about what lies ahead; I’m really excited to join the family of Bath and getting back on to the pitch.”
