International: Faletau prepares for Grand Slam finale

18 March 2021

Five players will represent Bath Rugby on the international stage in Round 5 of the Guinness Six Nations this weekend.

Taulupe Faletau (Wales), Anthony Watson and Charlie Ewels (both England) all start for their countries while Will Stuart (England) and Jamie Bhatti (Scotland) will look to make an impact from the bench.

Wales face France in Paris with the chance of winning the Grand Slam. Number 8 Faletau scored last time out against Italy to help them to a 48-7 win on his 85th cap.

Watson also crossed the whitewash and received the player of the match award on his 50th international appearance as England overcame the French at Twickenham – a match which saw lock Ewels put in an incredible shift for 78 minutes and prop Stuart have an influence in the phase leading up to Maro Itoje’s winning score.

The trio take on Ireland in Dublin while front rower Bhatti, who earned his 17th Scotland cap against the Irish, will hope to add to that when Gregor Townsend’s side take on Italy.
