Bath Rugby can confirm that Victor Delmas has joined the Club with immediate effect.
The 26-year-old had been set to join Bath in the summer but the French second-tier side have granted him an early release.
Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, said: “Firstly, we’d like to thank Colomiers for releasing Victor early. Recent injuries have left us short at tighthead, so we’re fortunate to have the opportunity to bring him in.

“Victor will not only give us another option for the run-in, but it will give us an extra few months to integrate him into the system and develop as a player ready for next season.”
A powerful scrummaging prop signed his first professional contract with Colomiers in 2011 before representing the French under 20s.
Delmas went on to make 94 appearances for the club before making his move to the Black, Blue and Whites.
