Wilson extends stay with Bath Rugby

22 February 2017

Jack Wilson has extended his stay with Bath Rugby until at least 2019, the Club are delighted to confirm.

The 27 year-old winger joined Bath in October, making the move from New Zealand provincial side Otago, and has made eight appearances so far, scoring three tries in the process.

Strong in defence and a real threat with ball in hand, Wilson has shown his attacking flair off the wing with a memorable try against Newcastle Falcons earlier this month, where he fended off three tacklers on his way to a 40 metre run in.

On his new deal, Wilson said: “I have really enjoyed my time with Bath so far and I am looking forward about my next two years here.

“There is a great squad here at Bath, many of whom have committed to the Club long-term, and that’s fantastic to be part of going forward. We’re an ambitious Club, and I’m excited to be playing a part in that over the coming seasons.”

Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, added: “It’s great news to have Jack on board for next season. He’s been a real positive influence on the squad and I know he has a lot more to offer in the last few months of the season and looking ahead to the future.

“His experience in the Southern Hemisphere and in Sevens brings that different dimension to the squad, which will be invaluable during his time with Bath Rugby.”
