ARGENTINA prop Lucas Noguera has joined Bath.

The 24 year-old loosehead will arrive at the club this week, while the Aviva Premiership club have also confirmed that Australian hooker Nathan Charles will return and that James Wilson has agreed a contract extension.

Both Charles and Wilson will be with Bath until the end of the season.

“I can’t wait to start this next stage of my career with Bath,” said Noguera.

“Bath are a very ambitious club, which will be exciting to be part of, and I know I will improve as a player here.”

Noguera made his international debut in 2014, and has become an integral member of the Los Pumas squad, earning more than 40 caps and featuring in Argentina’s autumn internationals last month.

“Lucas is a great addition to the squad,” said Director of Rugby Todd Blackadder.

“He’s a very talented young prop, who has already gained a huge amount of experience on the international stage.

"His all-round skillset is impressive, and he is still relatively young so can get even better.

"He really fits into the squad we are putting together here, and I’m sure he’ll continue developing into a fantastic player over the coming seasons.”
