Having joined Bath Rugby from Rotherham Titans in 2010, Ross Batty is now one of the key hookers at the Club.
A product of the Newcastle Falcons academy, former Barnard Castle School pupil Batty grew into his own as a player following a spell in New Zealand. There he developed his game, first at the NZ International Rugby Academy then on loan at NPC team Wairarapa-Bush, before returning to Falcons as a full-time professional.
An incredibly mobile forward who poses a threat in the loose and at the set-piece, Batty has made over 140 appearances to date in the Blue, Black and White.
