Number eight Jaco Coetzee has made 18 appearances for Bath this season since coming back from injury

Back row Jaco Coetzee has signed a one-year contract extension to say at Bath until the end of 2024-25.

The 27-year-old South African joined Bath during 2020-21 but saw his playing time initially hindered by injuries.

The number eight has however returned and become a regular, with 18 of his 34 appearances coming this campaign.

"It's been great to come back from a long spell on the sidelines last season to playing some of my best rugby yet," Coetzee said.

Coetzee follows a long line of players who have signed new deals with the club including forward Josh Bayliss and hooker John Stewart.
