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.
