Louw going to Bath

6:38 am on 13 July 2011

The Springboks flanker Francios Louw will move to English rugby club Bath later this year.

The 26-year-old Stormers player has signed a 3-year deal.

Louw has been named in the provisional South African squad for the World Cup and is likely to move in December.

Louw, who has seven international caps, replaces fellow Springbok and former Bath captain Luke Watson who is returning to the Republic.
