Since arriving from London Irish in 2019, Josh McNally has been a terrific leader, not only in his actions but with his words too. 

He was a late addition to the professional game having joined the Royal Air Force in 2009 as weapons technician and was allowed to join Henley Hawks as part of the Royal Air Force Rugby Union Centre of Excellence Scheme in 2012. 

Impressing over a two-year period, McNally stepped into the professional game with London Welsh in 2014 before going on to represent London Irish.  

It was with the Exiles suffered a minor stoke and extensive tests revealed a small hole in his heart, a condition known as Patent Foramen Ovale. 

Following a minor procedure, the second row returned to the field and starred for Irish and was recognised by the UK Armed Forces as their Sportsman of the Year 2018.

McNally’s performances for Bath have been instrumental with a never-give-up approach and a desire to be the best he can be. That earned him the opportunity to play for his country where he won a first England cap against USA in the summer of 2021.
