6:01 pm on 9 June 2011

The Chiefs first-five Stephen Donald has reportedly signed with English rugby club Bath.

The BBC says the 27-year-old has signed a two-and-half-year contract and will arrive at the Premiership outfit in November.

He has 22 caps and is expected to be part of the All Blacks World Cup squad, which is announced in July.

Donald, whose contract with the Chiefs expires this year, is seen as a replacement for South African Butch James who left Bath this season.
