BATH RUGBY RE-SIGN KIWI BACK WILSON


BATH Rugby have re-signed utility back James Wilson until the end of the season.

The 35-year-old New Zealander made 20 appearances for the club in 2017/18 after joining from Northampton Saints.

He has been playing back in New Zealand for Southland but is now heading back for the Premiership.

Bath’s director of rugby Todd Blackadder said: “James plays with intent and can cover a number of positions across the back line. He will add much needed depth to our squad over the next six months.

“James arrives this week and I expect to see him train hard in order to make selection ahead of Sale. We are delighted to have him back.”

Wilson said: “To be back at Bath is absolutely brilliant – I cannot wait to put the jersey back on and get out there with the boys. I know how focused everyone at the club is on challenging for a place in the top four and I am excited to be part of that.”
