Jaco Coetzee has made it an aim to emulate childhood hero and now friend Francois Louw by making over 100 appearances for Bath Rugby.

The South African joined the Blue, Black and White from Super Rugby franchise The Stormers and spent the second half of the 2020/21 season learning the Bath way as well as recovering from a knee injury.

A family man, Coetzee possesses impressive stopping power and physical play at the breakdown. He brings significant attacking capabilities as a destructive ball-carrying Number 8 and will add further dominance to the squad as it evolves its attacking game.

I’m really excited for the challenge ahead - Coetzee
