Leinster star set to move to English Premiership side on three-year deal

On the move.

Leinster are currently flying high at the top of the URC table following their win over Cardiff at the weekend but they look set to lose one of their stalwarts at the end of the season.

According to The Irish Times, lock Ross Molony is poised to join Bath in the English Premiership on a three-year deal.

Molony has been one of Leinster’s most consistent players over the last few years but has been overlooked by Ireland with the likes of Tadhg Beirne, Iain Henderson, Joe McCarthy, and James Ryan ahead of him in the pecking order.

And with RG Snyman set to join the eastern province from rivals Munster next season, competition is set to get even tougher for Molony at a domestic level too.

Last season Molony started in 18 of 23 appearances for Leinster, which amounted to 1,450 minutes. An excellent bit of business from head coach Johann van Graan at Bath if they can get this over the line.
