TRANSFER NEWS: Argentinian international prop Lucas Noguera has joined Bath Rugby, the Premiership club confirmed.

A destructive force at the scrum and effective carrier around the field, the 24-year-old loosehead will arrive at the club this week.

"I can’t wait to start this next stage of my career with Bath," said Noguera. "Bath are a very ambitious Club, which will be exciting to be part of, and I know I will improve as a player here,"

An athletic, intelligent player, Noguera made his international debut in 2014 and has become an integral member of the Los Pumas squad, earning over 40 caps to date. He was most recently in international action in Argentina’s November Internationals earlier.

"Lucas is a great addition to the squad," commented Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder. "He’s a very talented young prop, who has already gained a huge amount of experience on the international stage.

His all-round skillset is impressive, and he is still relatively young so can get even better. He really fits into the squad we are putting together here, and I’m sure he’ll continue developing into a fantastic player over the coming seasons,"

Bath Rugby can also confirm that Australian hooker Nathan Charles will return to the Club and that James Wilson has agreed on a contract extension. Both Charles and Wilson will be with Bath until the end of the season.
