Bath have announced the signings of number eight Leroy Houston and tighthead prop Juan Pablo Orlandi.
Australian Houston arrives at the Rec following a two year stint at French club Colomiers. He impressed Bath head coach Gary Gold hugely while playing in the Queensland Reds side that lifted the Super Rugby trophy in 2011.
Argentinean international Orlandi, 29, joins from Racing Métro where he has spent the last three seasons
"These are two very significant signings for Bath in that they say a lot about our ambition," said Gold.
"Leroy is a guy I have admired for a long time, and we are delighted to have secured him. He's very dangerous with ball in hand, and loves to hit hard in defence.
"Juan Pablo is also a very powerful man. I spoke personally to the Pumas coach, Santiago Phelan, and he backed up our opinions, telling me that this guy is the real deal. To have depth in such key positions as tighthead prop is vital, and to add a world class player to our squad is very pleasing. We can't wait to get these guys training with us and to see them develop into Bath players."
