Evans delighted to be joining Bath Rugby

Bath Rugby will next season welcome the arrival of scrum-half Jonathan Evans from Newport Gwent Dragons, the Club can today confirm.

The 22-year-old, who hails from the Rhymney Valley in South Wales, has represented his country at U18 and U20 level. A prodigious talent, he made his debut for Dragons aged just 17, making him the youngest player to ever represent the region.

"I'm delighted to be joining Bath Rugby next season," said Evans, who recently helped the Dragons beat Irish giants Leinster. "Playing for my home region since I was a teenager is something I'll always be extremely proud of, and I'm hoping to join Bath next season having finished on a high with the Dragons."

"Having known Jonny since he was a youngster and seen his development for myself, I know he'll fit right in here at Bath," said Darren Edwards, who coached Evans at Dragons and with Wales U20s. "He brings a spark to the game and he's very much at an exciting stage of his career. He's joining a Club that has a fantastic forward pack and he'll thrive on playing off such a strong platform."

Cook excited to stay with Bath Rugby

Chris Cook has extended his contract with Bath Rugby, the Club are delighted to announce.

The Bath Rugby Academy graduate has made the scrum-half shirt his own this season, starting 16 of Bath's games to date, including the victories over Leicester Tigers and Saracens at the Recreation Ground, and Montpellier and Toulouse away in France.

"I'm really excited to be staying at Bath", said 23-year-old Cook. "This is the best place for me to keep developing, with the focus very much on helping young players such as myself to continue improving. There is still a lot of potential to be realised within the squad, and I'm looking forward to being part of it."

The quick-thinking, tenacious number 9 spent much of last season on loan with London Welsh, becoming an integral part of their Championship winning campaign, following on from winning the Aviva A League with Bath United in December 2013.
Mike Ford, Head Coach at Bath, added "Chris has massively come on this season, and we're very pleased he's staying with us. He learnt a lot through the regular game-time he got on loan with London Welsh, came back to us for pre-season eager to impress and earn his place and that's what he's done. He's got an exciting future ahead of him, and we're looking forward to helping him achieve his full potential."
