Bristol complete the signing of Bath number eight Ben Skirving, who will join the club at the beginning of next season.

Bristol head coach Liam Middleton has revealed his delight at the capture of Bath number eight Ben Skirving.

The 22-year-old, who is a full England international, has been branded "a very impressive individual" by Middleton.

"Ben is a very impressive individual with a wealth of experience," Middleton told Bristol's official website.

"He's a widely respected professional who can become an integral member of our squad. Ben is a powerful ball-carrier, a hard worker and gives us plenty of options in the lineout.

"We're trying to build a squad with the right balance of youth and experience - Ben fits the bill of a player in the prime of his career."

Skirving, who will join Bristol at the end of the season, came through the academy at Saracens.
