Bath have bolstered their pack for next season with the signing of Sale prop Henry Thomas.

The highly-rated 22-year-old has impressed for club and country over the last year, making his England debut on last summer's tour of Argentina and earning a place in Stuart Lancaster's squad for the Six Nations.

"I am really excited to be moving to Bath next season," said Thomas, who has made over 50 senior appearances for the Sharks.

"They are a club clearly on the rise, with a lot of ambition."

"They are a club clearly on the rise, with a lot of ambition.

"They also have a very strong pack, excellent coaches and a top squad, so I can't wait to get started there."

Bath have also announced that young loosehead prop Nick Auterac will join the club from Saracens at the end of the season.

The 21-year-old, who has represented England at U20 level, broke into the Sarries first team in November 2012 after progressing through the club's academy system.

"Henry and Nick are exceptionally talented, and they have a lot of potential as young players to get even better," Bath forwards coach Neal Hatley said.

"They are enthusiastic about learning and improving, which really fits the culture we are building here at Bath. We're very much looking forward to them joining the squad."
