Bath Rugby sign fullback Arscott

3 June 2014

Bath Rugby is delighted to today confirm the signing of fullback Luke Arscott, on a two year deal.

The 29 year old will be a strong addition to the Bath squad, bringing experience as well as talent to the young backline.

Playing for Exeter Chiefs for the last four years, Arscott has emerged as one of the best fullbacks in the Aviva Premiership, secure under the high ball, fierce in defence and devastating in attack.

Speaking of the signing, Bath Head Coach, Mike Ford, said: "We are really pleased Luke is joining us. We had a gap in the squad for a more experienced out-and-out fullback, and Luke fits the bill perfectly. He's got all the attributes you'd expect, and he'll be a very good fit at the Club."

Arscott added: "I'm very excited by the opportunity to join Bath, and I'm looking forward to linking up with the squad for pre-season. You can see how much they have developed this year, and the potential that is still there, so it will be great to be part of that going forward into the new season."
