At 6'7", Jersey-born Matt Banahan switched from the pack to the wing with devastating effect, scoring 16 tries in his debut season for Bath Rugby.

Capped 16 times for England - he scored twice in his first two Test, and featured at the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand - Banahan is the undisputed top try-scorer in the current Bath squad and at full tilt is the scourge of opposition defences. 

A long-time servant of Bath Rugby, Banahan has been a fantastic ambassador for the Club since his arrival from the London Irish Academy in 2006. In 2014/15, in what was one of Banahan's best seasons yet, he scored an impressive 13 tries for Bath - more than any of his teammates.
