Scaysbrook has played in eight Premiership campaigns
Championship side Exeter Chiefs have signed England Saxons back row James Scaysbrook from Bath.
The 27-year-old natural openside flanker had spent eight years with Bath, playing over 150 times.
Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter said: "James is the ideal player to complete our back-row options.
"He started in all three back-row positions for Bath last season and brings with him a wealth of experience despite being only 27 years old."
Baxter added: "James also possesses a great work ethic which will ensure he fits in really well with the rest of our forwards."
