Bath have signed centre Jamie Roberts from Harlequins for next season.

Roberts, who has won 94 caps for Wales and was a member of the British & Irish Lions tours in 2009 and 2014, spent three years with Quins.

He started his career with Cardiff RFC before joining Cardiff Blues in 2007. Roberts also spent two seasons with French Top 14 side Racing Metro.

Roberts said: “I’m really excited to have signed for Bath Rugby – it’s a club with a great deal of ambition, which was crucial in making my decision to come here.

“There is no doubt that Bath can mix it with the best in both the (Aviva) Premiership and in Europe over the next few years, and I’m looking forward to being part of the journey.

Bath director of rugby Todd Blackadder added: “Jamie needs no introduction – he is a player with vast experience with two Lions tours and close to 100 caps for his country under his belt.

“We are delighted to bring someone of his quality to the club, and I know will make an instant impact when he comes in this summer.

“He’s hugely respected both on and off the field, and it’s those qualities which makes this a really significant signing for the club. Not only that, but he’s hugely ambitious and I believe that both Bath and Wales will reap the rewards from this move.”
