RUGBY: Bath's Koster in Bristol loan switch
4:24pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in Sport
BATH back row Nick Koster has joined west country rivals Bristol on a season-long loan.
The 24 year old South African, joined Bath fom Western Province last October, scoring a superb solo try on his debut against Calvisano in the Amlin Challenge Cup and will link up with the Championship side, whose director of rugby is former Bath, ENgland and Scotland coach Andy Robinson.
Bath director of rugby Gary Gold said: "Nick will thrive for Bristol in what is an increasingly competitive Championship.
"We are lucky at Bath Rugby to have so many experienced back rowers at the moment, so we knew Nick's development would be best served somewhere he would get regular game time.
"Fortunately for us, he won't be too far away from Bath to be called upon should the need arise."
