James Scaysbrook
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."

It is my ambition to come and help Exeter to challenge for promotion to get us into the Premiership

"I came down last week to meet Rob (Baxter) and as soon as I looked at the place, I knew it was moving in the right direction.

"It is my ambition to come and help Exeter to challenge for promotion to get us into the Premiership."
