Former Rugby League star Sam Burgess has signed a three-year-contract with Bath. He says it's going to be an "exciting couple of years" and his first impressions of the city are good.
I had a little walk around the city this morning - it's a beautiful place, it's absolutely stunning. I've not spent a lot of time down here in the south (of England) but for now... what I've seen of it and the people I've met, it's been fantastic. It's going to be a cracking experience I can tell.

Rugby League star Sam Burgess has made the switch to Rugby Union. He signed a three year contract with Bath but his start was delayed while he recovered after fracturing his cheekbone and eye socket in the NRL Grand Final.
Burgess, who's 25, was hurt six seconds into the match, his last league game before switching from League to Union, but played on to help South Sydney Rabbitohs win the title.
He was at the Rec this morning, wearing a Bath shirt and meeting the media for the first time.
Here's a brief clip of the moment Slammin' Sam posed for the cameras.
An American teen actor and heart throb has made an official complaint to a computer games firm after it scrapped his favourite team - Bristol Rovers.
Disney star Jake Short sent a tweet to EA Sports asking why the non-league side wasn't in the new Fifa 15 game.
Jake, 17, has appeared in Dexter and is playing Fletcher Quimby in the TV comedy A.N.T Farm and also, it appears, a fan of die-hard grassroots football.
The teen star tweeted his 800,000 followers asking why Bristol Rovers, currently sixth in the Football Conference, isn't in the latest Fifa game.
@easports Could you please tell me why you guys decided to take Bristol Rovers out of FIFA 15? Any explanation would be appreciated.
It is not known if the actor has any connection with Bristol but there is a simple explanation. The football simulator game has yet to licence the Conference so when Rovers fell from League Two, they also lost their place in the game.
Swindon Town have moved up to third place in League One after a convincing 3-0 win at Chesterfield.
