Premiership Rugby have today confirmed that Bath Rugby have today been charged with allegedly breaching Premiership Rugby approved policies.
The allegation relates to the Premiership Rugby Board policy around international duty and specifically Taulupe Faletau being released outside the periods specified in World Rugby Regulation 9.
Faletau was released by Bath to play in Wales’ extra fourth November Test against South Africa this past weekend. It’s believed that he has a clause in his contract, leaving Bath no choice but to release him.
Bath Rugby have seven days to respond to the allegation and once that time has passed Premiership Rugby will issue a further update. Premiership Rugby have stated that they will make no further comment until that time.
