Leaving.

Bath Rugby have confirmed that Wales international Rhys Priestland is set to leave the Club at the end of the season.

Priestland joined the Club in 2015 and has made over 60 appearances for the Blue, Black and White since his arrival from Welsh side Scarlets.

Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, said:

“Rhys has been an influential figure not only on the field but in his leadership off the field over the last four years.

“There’s still a lot of rugby to play between now and the end of the season, and I have no doubt he’ll play a key role in the next six months.”

Where Priestland will go once his contract is up remains to be seen, but it’s thought he may look to return to Wales with one of the four regions.
