Bath hookers Rob Webber and Ross Batty have both signed new contracts with the club.

Webber, who featured in all four of England's autumn internationals last month, moved to the Rec in 2012 from Wasps and has since made 28 Premiership appearances for the club.

Batty joined Bath from Newcastle in 2010 and has played 55 league games for the West Country outfit.

Gloucester have announced the signing of Tonga international wing David Halaifonua.

The 27-year-old, who can also play full-back, will join his Tonga colleagues Sione Kalamafoni, Aleki Lutui and Sila Puafisi at Kingsholm, subject to visa approval.

"David will bring something different to what we already have at the club and provides some cover for the loss of James Simpson-Daniel and, more recently, the departure of Tom Isaacs," Gloucester rugby director David Humphreys said.

"We are looking forward to welcoming him on board, adding more international quality to the squad and seeing him contribute for what is an exciting second half of the season."
