Bath Sign Kiwi Winger As Todd Blackadder’s Revolution Takes Hold

Todd Blackadder has been rebuilding the Bath squad since taking charge.

Since taking charge at Bath last summer, Todd Blackadder has wasted little time putting his own stamp on the squad.

Already the former Crusaders coach has re-signed Leroy Houston and Shaun Knight on short term deals, and added fellow kiwi’s Robbie Fruean and Paul Grant to an increasingly cosmopolitan Bath squad.

Blackadder’s revolution doesn’t appear to showing any signs of letting up either, after the club confirmed the capture of Highlanders and Otago winger, Jack Wilson.

Wilson has played sevens for both England and New Zealand, and has also experienced the rough and tumble of the Premiership while playing with Saracens during 2013/14.

Although he failed to make an impact with Sarries, Wilson immediately returned to the southern hemisphere with the Sharks before joining the Highlanders earlier this year.

Commenting on the signing on Bath’s website, Blackadder claimed stated “Jack will be a fantastic addition to the squad”.

he’s very fit from his time with the England Sevens squad, and is a player who suits the way we want to play the game.

He has a great attitude, and we’re looking forward to having him join us soon.

Wilson will join Bath on a season long deal after the conclusion of the Mitre 10 Cup.
