Bath props sign new contracts

Date published: December 1 2015

Bath props Nick Auterac and Nathan Catt have signed contract extensions with the Premiership club.

Catt, 27, and Auterac, 23, are widely regarded as two of the most exciting looseheads in the English game.

“It’s fantastic for us to be retaining the services of Nathan and Nick, two outstanding young props,” said head coach Mike Ford.

“They both have their best years ahead of them too, and with someone of the calibre of Neal Hatley overseeing their development in the pack, they’ll keep going from strength to strength.

"We see them as the modern-day props: not just excellent at the set piece, but mobile and skilful around the field.”

Auterac joined the club from Saracens ahead of the 2014/15 season, whilst Catt rose through the ranks of the Bath Academy, making the step up to the first team squad in 2008.
