Bath have announced the signing of England international back-row forward Ben Skirving from their Guinness Premiership rivals Saracens.
Skirving, capped against South Africa in 2007, has signed a two-year contract at the Recreation Ground.
The 25-year-old has made more than 150 first team appearances for Saracens.
Bath head coach Steve Meehan said: "Ben represents the character that we want at Bath.
"He is well-known and respected for his hard work and dependability, and he is another player that we believe will improve in the Bath environment."
