England international Nathan Hughes has joined Bath Rugby on loan from Bristol Bears. The Number 8 joins with immediate effect, bringing both physicality and power to Bath's back row.
Head Coach Neal Hatley commented: "We are delighted to secure Nathan's services - he is a destructive ball carrier and provides critical cover throughout the international window.
"I have been fortunate enough to work with him at international level. His experience and attributes, both as a person and a player, mean we are all looking forward to seeing him perform and making an impact for the Blue, Black and Whites."
