Melbourne Rebels prop Max Lahiff has joined Premiership contenders Bath, the club confirmed on Friday.
A strong scrummaging front row, 25-year-old Lahiff returns to the Premiership having experienced Super Rugby.
Known for his physically imposing style of play, he previously made over 60 appearances for London Irish.
“I’m really excited to be joining Bath,” said Lahiff.
“They’re a hugely talented, ambitious club, and I know that it is a great opportunity for me to keep developing as a player.
“I’m looking forward to working with Neal Hatley and the rest of the forwards and pushing for a place in an exceptionally talented pack.”
“Max is a very talented young prop, and it’s exciting to have him joining us,” said Hatley.
“He is technically really good, and offers a lot around the field as well, and he’ll really fit in with the style we are striving to play here at Bath.”
