David Sisi and Anthony Watson have agreed to become the latest players to make the move from London Irish to Bath.

Exiles duo Matt Garvey and Jonathan Joseph have already agreed deals to join Bath at the end of the season, while Toby Booth and Neal Hatley have been part of the coaching set-up at the Rec for the past year.

Bath have now announced that they have agreed contracts with 20-year-old back-row Sisi and 19-year-old winger Watson.

Both Sisi and Watson, who can also play at full-back, have capped by England at Under-20s level and have been tipped to have bright futures.

Watson has scored four tries on 18 appearances for the club, while Sisi, who has previously had a loan stint at London Scottish, has played 13 times.

Bath head coach Gary Gold said: "Anthony and David are outstanding players with real potential for the long-term.

"We feel that by bringing them into this environment we will really see them develop and bring out the best in them.

"Young, English talent is a big part of our thinking, and we see these young men as investments for the future. We are delighted to have secured them both."
