Sam Underhill has developed into a world-class back rower at Bath Rugby.

He came on to the scene at 17 featuring a couple of times for Gloucester before switching to Ospreys where he firmly introduced himself with Wales and England vying for his international commitment. 

Born in USA, Underhill did captain England at Under-18 level and moved to Bath Rugby in 2017, making his full international debut in Argentina following on from a non-cap appearance against the Barbarians.

A powerful and destructive forward, the flanker is player who has a huge influence with his leadership and is a menace over the ball. 

Underhill was a key in England’s run to the 2019 Rugby World Cup final and has been a consistent performer for the Blue, Black and Whites, surpassing 50 appearances for the club in 2021.
