ATTWOOD TRANSFERS FROM GLOUCESTER

Bath have signed England forward Dave Attwood from Gloucester. The 23-year-old, who joined the Cherry and Whites from Bristol in the summer of 2009, has agreed a two-year deal at the Recreation Ground.

“I am excited to be joining Bath, there are some amazing things going on at the club,” said Dave Attwood.

“It is a great opportunity for me to push myself out of my comfort zone on the pitch and develop the brand of rugby that I can play.”

He continued: “I will be sorry to leave Kingsholm behind, but sometimes that is the way life pans out.
