    Australian international Charles joins Bath Rugby

    15 March 2017


    Bath Rugby has signed Australian hooker Nathan Charles until the end of the season.

    Charles, who has won four international caps, joins the Club following a spell with French Top 14 side Clermont Auvergne.

    The 28-year-old has spent most of his career with Western Force, but has experience of playing in the UK after a six-week stint with Bath’s West Country rivals Gloucester Rugby in 2011.

    Charles said: “I’m really looking forward to returning to England to play for such a prestigious Club.

    “It’s an exciting time for Bath and I’m ready to hit the ground running in what is a crucial few weeks in Europe and the Premiership.”

    Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, added: “After losing three hookers in the last month, we’re really fortunate to be able to bring in someone of Nathan’s calibre.

    “He’s an extremely mobile forward and I am sure he will offer a great deal to the squad in the closing stages of the season.”

    The Wallabies - Still the only team to score tries and win away from home in both, yes both its World Cup victories!

    I vote - and I want a proper rectangular stadium in Perth!

    Should be a good fit for Darwin.

    At Clermont he was fighting with a big French ex-international hooker, Kaysar, and rarely getting a game.
    Bath have club stalwart Ross Batty, who is also a mobile forward, but has never been seen as England standard, so Nathan might get more game time, even if its off the bench
