Thomas to depart Bath Rugby at end of the season

4 June 2021

Henry Thomas’ seven-year stay at Bath Rugby will come to an end when the 2020/21 campaign draws to a close.

The 29-year-old has played a formative role since arriving at the Rec and his commitment to the club, and his teammates, over a prolonged period has seen him surpass 100 Bath appearances.

He had always envisaged running out in the Blue, Black and White since supporting the club as a child whilst playing for Bath RFC minis and that dream became a reality against former side Sale Sharks in 2014.

Thomas will depart Bath for a new challenge with the very best wishes of everyone at the club.


“I’m immensely proud to have played over 100 games for the club I supported as a kid,” he said.

“I went and watched with my dad, I was a mascot in ’98 and it makes me proud to have been here that long and to have been a part of so many talented squads.

“After seven years, I think it was time for a change and I’m really excited for the next chapter.”


On Thomas’ departure, Director of Rugby Stuart Hooper said: “To play over 100 games for the club shows Henry’s dedication to the game. 

“He has played in one of the toughest positions and been a huge part of the Blue, Black and White over the past seven years. We wish him all the best in his next chapter.”
