According to reports in the Bath Chronicle and Wales Online, outhalf Rhys Priestland is set to backtrack on his decision to take an 18 month sabbatical from international rugby.

Priestland announced his decision to take a break came after he signed for Bath after the World Cup, who saw the former Scarlets fly half as an ideal replacement for George Ford while he was with the England squad.
