James to join Ospreys Rugby at end of season

Bath Rugby can confirm that loosehead prop Paul James will be joining Ospreys Rugby at the end of the season.

The 32-year-old, who has been capped 55 times by Wales, will return to the Swansea-based region from which he joined Bath in 2012. He has made 59 appearances so far for the West Country side, during which time he has played an integral part in the resurgence of the Club's pack as one of the most formidable in the Aviva Premiership.

"I can't speak highly enough of the people here at Bath, in terms of both the Club and its supporters," said James. "From a family perspective, it's been a wonderful experience for us living here too, but it's the right time for us to move back home to Wales. However, there's still a lot to play for here at Bath and I look forward to finishing this season on a high with the team."

Bath Rugby Head Coach Mike Ford said: "Paul has been an outstanding competitor for the Club since his arrival. He's a great leader, a guy who turns up to training with the right attitude every day and gives you everything he's got on matchday. We wish him the best of luck with his move."

James was last week named in Warren Gatland's Wales squad for the Autumn Series, where they will face Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and South Africa at the Millennium Stadium.

Armitage Bath move is dead - Ford

Bath head coach Mike Ford has said the proposed deal to sign Steffon Armitage from French club Toulon is "dead".

The 29-year-old flanker has been named in the Toulon side to face Scarlets in Sunday's European Champions Cup and will be cup tied if he plays.

"We've tried our best to get him but unfortunately we've just failed to cross the line, " Ford said.

Armitage is now unlikely to play in next year's World Cup, due to England's policy of selecting home-based players.

Both Bath and Armitage had been keen on a move that would enable the reigning European player of the year to challenge for a place in Stuart Lancaster's squad for the 2015 tournament.
But, despite lengthy discussions, the clubs were unable to reach a financial agreement.

"It's a dead deal," Ford told BBC Radio 5 live. "We couldn't really agree with the finances with Toulon, so he'll play for them this weekend and it's a done deal."
