Joseph to join Bath

London Irish centre Jonathan Joseph will leave the club at the end of the season to join Premiership rivals Bath.

The 21-year-old, who has four caps for England, turned down a new contract with the Exiles in order to make a move to the Rec.

Joseph came through Irish's academy system and has made 41 Premiership appearances, scoring 13 tries.

Well if he can run in tries on that quagmire of a pitch then he'll be a hero.

We will know we have made it as a club when we stop losing players we really don't want to lose.
Last years turnover of players and staff has us where we are today. We can ill-afford another summer of turmoil.

Looks like we're a feeder club for Bath these days:

So Toby Booth spent years at London irish and failed to succeed with a particular group of players. He is now bringing them with him to Bath - will they succeed for him there? Can't see how that works.

Peter - I fear the answer may include "Bruce Craig" and "£350 million" (his approximate net worth)...
