Summer signing Horacio Agulla says Bath Rugby's acceptance of his international commitments was the conclusive factor in his decision to head to The Rec.
With the Rugby Championship heavily restricting the Argentine winger's involvement at club level, previous side Leicester Tigers opted not to renew his contract at the end of last season.
New Bath head coach Gary Gold was quick to secure the 28-year-old's services, with Agulla grateful for Bath's backing following his arrival at the club last week – four months after first agreeing to join.
"I always wanted to stay in the Premiership," said Agulla, who arrived at Welford Road in 2010 from French outfit Brive. "I enjoy playing my rugby here and like it more than the Top 14.
"Leicester didn't want me to stay because of the Championship but then they said yes then no many times.
"When I had the option to join Bath and heard they were interested in me and didn't mind that I would be away I was really thankful.
"It is not easy for an Argentina player to find a club at the moment but they trusted me and my game.
