Welsh international Luke Charteris says he is excited at joining Bath Rugby next season.
The second row lock, who stands at 6’ 9”, will join Bath ahead of the 2016/17 season from Racing 92.
Charteris has won more than 60 Welsh caps, most recently in the 2015 Rugby World Cup. He is well known for his skilful line-out work and athleticism around the field.
Bath is such an ambitious club, and that’s a great atmosphere to be joining.
They put a lot of emphasis on player development, making sure that everyone is improving no matter how experienced they are, and that is a very exciting environment to be part of.
There is some incredible talent in the squad and I’m really looking forward to heading over and getting started.
Luke has been one of Wales’s stand out locks in recent years, and had a very good Rugby World Cup.
He’s a superb athlete at the set-piece and in the loose, has strong leadership qualities and a lot of experience that he can bring to the squad.
We’re delighted to have one of the best locks in the world join us, and he will help us keep improving and move quickly on to that next level.
Bristol's Lee Haskins is the new IBF Bantamweight Champion after his opponent Randy Caballero failed to make the weight at last night's weigh-in.
Caballero, the defending champion, was making a comeback after a year off through injury but he scaled five and a half pounds over the championship limit. The fight was called off and he was stripped of the belt.
Haskins says he's disappointed to miss out on a fight he's trained so hard for.

Bath have a tough ask, facing three-time champions Toulon at Stade Felix Mayo on Sunday but it seems they won't have too many problems with language on the pitch.
We put George Ford and Dave Attwood to the test. See how they get on with a few key rugby terms in French:
Bristol Rugby's first game in the British and Irish Cup has already hit an obstacle without a ball being played.
The team were due to take on Ulster tomorrow night (Friday 13 November) and were flying out to Northern Ireland when their flight was diverted due to severe turbulence.
They had to land at Glasgow instead - let's hope they make Kingspan Stadium in time for the 7.30pm start.
Horrific turbulence has resulted in landing at Glasgow. Gale force winds and rain outside. This is my all-time B&I Cup highlight.
First time for everything. Turbulence whilst on the ground! Delightful Scottish weather https://t.co/HuZkF704FU
Bristol Rovers have been knocked out of a second cup competition in the space of 3 days.

We’ve been looking to bolster our back row for some time now so we’re very excited that David is joining us. He had an excellent World Cup, especially in the quarter-final when he managed to outshine one of the best Australian back rows I’ve seen for a long time. He’s going to fit in very well with the team and the way we play here.
