Bath sign Short for next season

Bath have signed former Leicester forward Peter Short on a two-year deal.

Short, a member of the Tigers' squad that won back-to-back Heineken Cups, will join the West Country club in the summer from French side Narbonne.

The 25-year-old can play blind-side flanker or at lock, and Bath believe he will prove "extremely valuable".

"Peter has all the right attributes to thrive in the physical environment that is the Zurich Premiership," said Bath director of rugby Jack Rowell.

"He is a highly mobile, ball-carrying line-out forward who is as comfortable and effective in the back row as he is in the second row."

Short has spent the last two years with Narbonne in the French championship.

"I have really enjoyed my time with Narbonne and feel that I am returning to the Premiership having obtained valuable experience playing with and against world-class players," said Short.

"I feel that the time is right for me to make the move and I am looking forward to being a part of a strong squad and a renowned pack. I feel that I am moving to an ambitious club that will challenge for silverware."
