Imposing second row Michael Etete has signed for Bath Rugby for the 2022/23 season.
The 6ft 7 lock, who can also play in the back row, has impressed whilst on trial during pre-season.
A strong ball carrier with an ability to get over the gainline, Etete has featured in National 1 for both Leeds Tykes and Rams RFC over the past couple of seasons as well as starring in BUCS Super Rugby with Leeds Beckett University RFC.
He linked up with the Blue, Black and White on day one of pre-season for an initial three-week period and has earned his first opportunity at Gallagher Premiership level.
“We have been really pleased with Michael’s attitude and application so far in pre-season,” Head of Rugby Johann van Graan said.
“He has outstanding physical attributes and a strong desire to develop all facets of his game.”
