Bath have tied down winger Ruaridh McConnochie to a new four-year contract at the Recreation Ground. The 27-year-old back enjoyed a successful debut season with Todd Blackadder’s side as he scored four tries in 15 Premiership matches, while also featuring in the European Champions Cup.
Despite Todd Blackadder departing at the end of the campaign, new director of rugby Stuart Hooper was keen to tie Ruaridh McConnochie down to a longer-term contract. He told the club’s website: “To have agreed a long-term deal with Ruaridh is a statement of intent from not only the club, but from him too.
“He has been outstanding from the outset, but the exciting part of it is that there’s still so much growth in his game.” McConnochie added: “I’ve loved being in this city and being in such a great environment at Bath Rugby. “When I joined last summer, my focus was to learn the game and if I got the opportunity it was about making the most of it. “The experience so far has exceeded my expectations and I’m looking forward to what’s to come for us as a club.”
