Bath have made a much improved start to this season, after winning three of their first four Premiership games, leaving them in third position.
There is an air of confidence about The Rec, and the club have announced the signing of a new back-rower, Paul Grant from New Zealand.
The former Montpellier star returned to New Zealand to play with Otago earlier in 2016. The 28 year-old also has represented New Zealand at sevens.
An official club statement announced the news on their website, and there is a belief that Grant can bolster the squad this season.
“Bath Rugby is delighted to confirm the signing of Otago back-row Paul Grant until the end of the season.
“A physical and fast forward, Grant has previous experience of Northern Hemisphere rugby having enjoyed stints with both Nottingham and Montpellier. Priding himself on his strong ball carrying skills, the mobile 28-year-old has also represented New Zealand in sevens rugby.
“Talking about the signing, Director of Rugby at Bath, Todd Blackadder, said: “Paul is an experienced forward who will give us added strength in depth in the back row. He has a very dynamic playing style, understands the rugby we want to play here at Bath, and I know he’ll fit in really well.””
