The 26-year-old Australian has agreed a new two-year deal at Bath after impressing since joining from the Waratahs in 2009.

And Meehan delighted to see Carraro, who has made more than 40 appearances, commit to Bath.

"Matt is very strong, quick, and offloads well in the tackle, all skills that are very handy to have in a back-line player," he said.

"He has a great work ethic, and is a very hard tackler, providing a great example for the rest of the players."

Carraro admitted that the club's vision and progress was one of the key reasons for him opting to remain.

"I came to Bath with a bit of a point to prove with my rugby and I don't feel like I've done that yet - but with the way our play is progressing and the ambition at the club, there is a lot more to come at Bath, and I'm really looking forward to being part of it," said Carraro.

"My partner and I are very excited to continue our stay in Bath. We know how lucky we are to have come to a place as beautiful as this, and with the direction the club is going, we knew that there is nowhere we would rather be."
