Guinazu can cover both hooker and prop and has lined up in both the northern and southern hemispheres after turning out for Toulouse, Biarritz and the Stormers. He will also bring Test experience to the Bath front-row having started all six of Argentina's matches in the Rugby Championship and their three November Tests. He has penned a two-year deal and is joined at the club by Gilbert.
Gilbert arrives from Mogliano and has also turned out for the Scarlets and joins until the end of the season. He has also won 11 caps for the England Deaf rugby team.
And Bath boss Gary Gold was delighted to announce his new pair of signings saying: "Both Eusebio and Mat will be great additions to the squad we have here. Eusebio has a huge amount of experience which will be a great benefit to us, whilst Matt is a special young talent with a lot to offer the game. They are great guys, will fit in well, and we're looking forward to them joining us."
