LONG-SERVING SCRUM-HALF COOK AGREES NEW DEAL WITH BATH


LONG-serving scrum-half Chris Cook has signed a new contract with Bath Rugby.

The new deal will take the 27-year-old Bath born-and-break player into his 11th season with the club.

He has made more than 120 appearances for the club since making his first team debut against Cardiff Blues in 2010.

A graduate of club’s academy, Cook brings a vast amount of experience to the number nine jersey.

He said: “It’s massively exciting (to have re-signed). It’s not common for players stay to at a club for this long – I always play with my heart on my sleeve and put everything into it. I dreamt of playing on the Rec as a kid and to have over 120 caps is really special.”

Bath’s director of rugby Todd Blackadder added: “Cookie is a real competitor and someone who has given his all to Bath Rugby over the last decade. He’s a Bath boy through and through and I know how much it means to him to play for this club. There is a great deal of competition at scrum-half and I know like the others in the position, he will continue to fight for that starting shirt.”
