Bristol sign Bath hooker Will Tanner on dual-registration

Bath hooker Will Tanner has joined Championship side Bristol on a dual-registration deal.

He comes in as injury cover for Rhys Lawrence, who is sidelined with a broken nose, and Ross Johnston, who is out with a knee problem.

The 20-year-old will be available to face Rotherham Titans on Saturday.

A product of the Bath academy, he made his first-team debut against Sale in December 2011 and has made three appearances so far.

He spent last season on loan at Clifton and Taunton.
