Bath Bolstered by New Blood for 2015/16

15 June 2015

Bath Rugby’s challenge for domestic and European glory in the 2015/16 season and beyond has been bolstered by the signing of some exciting players. 

Wales international fly-half Rhys Priestland joins Bath from Scarlets, where he holds the region’s record for most points scored (1102 in 157 appearances). He burst onto the international scene in the 2011 Rugby World Cup, steering Wales to their first semi-final since 1987, and he will be out achieve a similar feat at this year’s event. 

Fijian scrum-half Nikola Matawalu is a thrilling young talent who joins from Glasgow Warriors, for whom he scored an impressive 24 tries in 71 appearances. In 2013, Matawalu broke a PRO12 record by being the first player to pick up four Man of the Match awards in a row, and was recently named Glasgow’s 2014/15 Player of the Season. 

Providing further competition in the scrum-half position is 22-year-old Jonathan Evans, who arrives from Newport Gwent Dragons. A prodigious talent, the Welshman made his debut for Dragons aged just 17, making him the youngest player to ever represent the region. 

Jeff Williams, a star of the Sevens World Series circuit for England, was recently part of the successful squad that won the Tokyo Sevens event in April. A dynamic and powerful player at centre or wing in rugby union, he gave a hint of what was to come in his career with an impressive solo score against Australia in the closing stages of his debut Sevens tournament in Twickenham.
