Bath on Wednesday confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets - Nick Koster will join Francois Louw in England.

Bath on Wednesday confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets - Nick Koster will join Francois Louw in England.

As this website reported a few weeks ago, the 23-year-old back row, Koster, was signed from Western Province.

An impressive and pacey young player, Koster represented Western Province since the 2008.

He made his Super Rugby debut in 2009 on the wing, but has since reverted to his traditional position in the back row.

Koster is an imposing figure and has represented South Africa at all age group levels.

Quick, strong and brave, he will add an extra dimension to the club's talented back row.

"Nick is a very exciting young player and we are delighted that he has agreed to move to Bath," Bath head coach Gary Gold said.

"He is a hard-working, incredibly motivated guy, and we are sure he will fit in with the club ethos we are developing.

"We have a very talented and competitive back row at present, and Nick knows he will have to fight for his place, but he is up for the challenge and we can't wait to see the results.

"We'd like to thank Western Province for their co-operation in allowing Nick to join us, and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with them.

"Hopefully it will allow players to potentially spend time with the other club as and when the opportunity should arise," Gold said.
