Bath Rugby Sign Argentina International Prop

Bath Rugby have received a significant boost ahead of the busy November schedule, with the news that Argentina international star Lucas Noguera is joining the club this week.

The 24-year-old loosehead prop is widely regarded as one of the best in the business, and will certainly aid Bath’s cause. Having won 42 caps with the Pumas, Noguera is looking forward to a new challenge.

“I can’t wait to start this next stage of my career with Bath. Bath are a very ambitious club, which will be exciting to be part of, and I know I will improve as a player here.”

Director of Rugby Todd Blackadder spoke of his excitement at the move.

“Lucas is a great addition to the squad. 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.”

Bath currently sit in fourth position in the Premiership table after 10 games, and are top of Pool 5 in the Champions Cup, facing into a doubleheader with Toulon.
