Barkley and two more commit to Bath

Bath Rugby have announced that Olly Barkley, Jack Cuthbert and forwards coach, Martin Haag, have all extended their contracts with the Club.

Olly and Jack have both agreed terms for two more years, and Martin has added another year to his contract.

Speaking of the news, Chief Executive, Nick Blofeld, said “We have seen some significant improvements, and been delighted with the forwards play recently, and so it was a simple decision to extend Martin’s contract.”

“His contract now brings him in line with the other coaches and we are very pleased that he has agreed to stay with us. Haagy brings great knowledge of the Club’s traditions and culture, which is also very valuable to us.”

Head Coach, Steve Meehan, commented “We are very happy that both Olly and Jack are staying with us for a further two years. They have a lot to offer us in the coming seasons, and play an important part in the squad. They are good blokes to have around the place, both on and off the field.

“Olly is an established favourite at the Rec, and has been playing some great rugby for us over recent seasons.”

“Likewise, Jack has been in great form, and we have seen him make a continued improvement as the season has gone on. His hard work is paying off, and this hasn’t gone unnoticed, either by us here at the Club, our supporters, or the Scotland selectors.”

Full back and wing, Cuthbert, has been with the club since 2007, having made 53 appearances in that time, and represented Scotland A in the autumn.

“It was an easy decision to stay with the Club, and I’m really excited by the prospect of combining the Club’s ambition with my own over the next two years.”
