Former Rugby League star Sam Burgess has signed a three-year-contract with Bath. He says it is 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.
