Esher have signed Bath scrum-half Chris Cook on dual-registrations terms.

The Championship side are without Clive Stuart-Smith, who is sidelined with a broken hand and Jamie Mackenzie, who is with Canada at the World Cup.

Esher coach Mike Schmid said: "We're delighted to get such a quality player. He knows a few of the boys and is highly rated by them.

"We needed cover at nine with our top two guys out and Bath are keen for him to get some game time."

The 20-year-old, who has been capped by England at Under-20 level, has been named as a replacement for Saturday's match against Bedford Blues.
