Bath Rugby Academy sign Wigan Warriors U19 centre

26 October 2015

Wigan Warriors U19 centre Liam Forsyth has joined the Bath Rugby Academy with immediate effect, the Club can confirm.

The 19-year-old has played for Wigan for the past 18 months, having been raised in St. Helens, Merseyside. 

Forsyth joins an exciting backs division in the Senior Academy, including fly-half Adam Hastings and fullback Darren Atkins. 

“Liam is a very skilful player, but he’s also a physically gifted young lad,” says Mike Ford, Bath Rugby Head Coach. “He’s played a season of rugby union before, so it won’t be too much of a learning curve for him. He’s joining a group of very talented  young English players here at the Club. Watching them develop together here is very exciting.”
