Priestland joins Bath

Bath confirmed that Welsh international fly-half Rhys Priestland will be joining the club next season.
The 27-year-old, who has 32 caps for his country, joins from the Scarlets having made nearly 150 appearances and scored over 1,000 points for the region.
“My entire rugby career has been spent in Wales and, although I’ve enjoyed that time enormously, I need a new challenge,” said the 27-year-old from Carmarthen.
“I’ve been really impressed watching Bath develop over the past couple of years into one of the most exciting teams in the country. It’s a world-class organisation in every sense, including the players, coaching staff and facilities.”
Bath Head Coach Mike Ford added: “Rhys is a fantastic player with an impressive pedigree: his record with Scarlets and Wales speaks for itself. He’s got a wide range of talents that suit our game plan and he’ll make a great addition to our squad. He’s still quite a young guy, but one with a lot of experience that will be really valuable, especially in the development of our younger players.”
