Bath have swooped to sign exciting wing prospect Joe Cokanasiga.

The Aviva Premiership club announced that Cokanasiga, who will be part of England's training squad for a camp in Brighton next week, has agreed a three-year deal.

The 20-year-old will move to Bath from London Irish and link up with them this summer.

"I am genuinely excited to be joining Bath," he told the west country club's official website.

"It is tough to leave Irish, having loved my time there, and I would like to thank everyone involved with the club for the opportunities they have given me.

"However, I feel the environment at Bath is exactly what I need to grow and develop as a player both on and off the field and ultimately achieve my international ambitions.

"There is huge potential to achieve success, and I am really looking forward to spending my long-term future with the club."

Bath rugby director Todd Blackadder said: "We're delighted to bring in Joe for next season.

"He is an exciting prospect, and at just 20 years-old has his entire career in front of him. We know he will bring a lot to the environment moving forwards, and we are all looking forward to helping him achieve his full potential.

"Joe brings power, pace and a huge physical presence to the wing position, which will be invaluable to us for many seasons."
