Aviva Premiership Rugby club Bath have signed Scarlets lock Dominic Day on a three year contract starting from next season.

The 26 year old lock, currently playing in the RaboDirect Pro12 with the Scarlets, is an integral part of the Welsh regions first team pack, making 97 appearances so far.

An imposing 6ft 6in and 18st figure, Day is an athletic line-out operator as well as being very effective in the loose and he will further strengthen the Club's second row resources for next season.

Sir Ian McGeechan, Director of Rugby, commented: "Dominic is already an experienced player, having played in both the RaboDirect Pro12 and the Heineken Cup. "

"He has a good range of skills necessary in a lock, and at 26 has the potential to develop further. He has a great attitude and we have no doubt that he'll fit in very well with the Bath culture and be a great addition to the squad.'

Dominic added: "Bath are a hugely ambitious Club, and I'm very excited to be joining them. "

"I've loved my time with the Scarlets, but feel it's the right time in my career for a change and to move on. "

"The Aviva Premiership is a hugely competitive league and playing in it is a challenge I've always wanted, so I'm really looking forward to getting involved and pushing myself in a new league. "
