Bath land Day

Bath have signed Scarlets lock Dominic Day on a three-year contract, the Aviva Premiership club have announced.

Day, 26, is an athletic lineout operator who has made 97 appearances for the Welsh region.

Bath director of rugby Sir Ian McGeechan said: "Dominic is already an experienced player, having played in both the RaboDirect PRO12 and the Heineken Cup."

He added: "He has a good range of skills necessary in a lock and at 26 has the potential to develop further.

"He has a great attitude and we have no doubt that he'll fit in very well with the Bath culture and be a great addition to the squad."

Day, who will join Bath in the summer for pre-season training, said: "Bath are a hugely ambitious club, and I'm very excited to be joining them.

"I've loved my time with the Scarlets, but feel it's the right time in my career for a change and to move on.

"The Aviva Premiership is a hugely competitive league and playing in it is a challenge I've always wanted, so I'm really looking forward to getting involved and pushing myself in a new league."
