Bath have confirmed that back-row forward David Sisi will be released on a season-long loan to London Irish for the 2015/16 Premiership campaign.
The loan move has been agreed so that the back-row can get some all-important game time and experience to help him continue his development as a player. Sisi recently signed a contract extension with Bath, and will return to the club for the 2016/17 season.
"All young players need consistent game time to help them improve and learn, and the back row is such a competitive position at Bath that this is a really good opportunity for me to get that time on the pitch," said Sisi.
Mike Ford, Head Coach at Bath, added: "Dave is a very talented young player, so we're looking forward to seeing how he progresses with London Irish before coming back to us. We want our young players to become the best players they can be, and this loan move gives Dave that chance."
