Bath have confirmed the signing of Scarlets lock Dominic Day who will join the Aviva Premiership side next season on a three-year contract.
Day, 26, is an athletic lineout operator who has made 97 appearances for the Welsh region. Bath director of rugby Sir Ian McGeechan said: "Dominic is already an experienced player, having played in both the RaboDirect PRO12 and the Heineken Cup.
"He has a good range of skills necessary in a lock and at 26 has the potential to develop further. He has a great attitude and we have no doubt that he'll fit in very well with the Bath culture and be a great addition to the squad."
Day, who will join Bath in the summer for pre-season training, said: "Bath are a hugely ambitious club, and I'm very excited to be joining them. I've loved my time with the Scarlets, but feel it's the right time in my career for a change and to move on.
"The Aviva Premiership is a hugely competitive league and playing in it is a challenge I've always wanted, so I'm really looking forward to getting involved and pushing myself in a new league."
