Underhill has established himself as a powerful and destructive forward, his impacts within key moments of the game having a huge influence on momentum, even on the world stage with England. As a premiership player with the Club, it has been his qualities in both attack and defence that have influenced performances, with his skills at the breakdown allowing for an impact on ball-speed and the ability for Bath develop their attacking game. 

Arguably one of the most exciting talents in the Northern Hemisphere, Underhill arrived at Bath Rugby for the 2017/18 season, after two seasons with Pro 12 outfit Ospreys.

The back-rower has gone from strength-to-strength for the Blue, Black and White and played a pivotal role for England in the 2019 Rugby World Cup, and the Six Nations and Quilter Autumn internationals during the 2018/19 season.
