BATH have confirmed that Darren Atkins has joined Yorkshire Carnegie on a dual-registration agreement.

The Academy full-back, who has made three first-team appearances this season, will join up with Bath team-mate Will Homer at the Championship side.

Bath Academy manager Andy Rock said: “This is a really good opportunity for Darren to get some game time under his belt.

"Darren’s had a really positive couple of months here, he can hopefully continue his progress after some really good performances in our senior squad.

"We’re excited to see how Darren does in the coming weeks in a different environment and competition, and we wish him all the best for his time at Yorkshire Carnegie over the coming weeks.”
