Aviva Premiership title contenders Bath have confirmed the signing of Newport Gwent Dragons scrum-half Jonathan Evans.

Evans, 22, will move to the Recreation Ground for next season, with his arrival following recent announcements that scrum-halves Peter Stringer and Micky Young will be leaving the west country club.

Evans has represented Wales at under-18 and under-20 levels, and made his Dragons debut at the age of 17.

He will join fellow scrum-half newcomer Niko Matawalu at Bath next term under head coach Mike Ford's direction.

Bath first-team coach Darren Edwards, who previously worked with Evans at the Dragons and Wales Under-20s, said: " He brings a spark to the game, and he is very much at an exciting stage of his career.

"He is joining a club that has a fantastic pack, and he will thrive on playing off such a strong platform."
