BATH RUGBY: Biggs to switch codes
BATH wing Tom Biggs has revealed that he will leave the Rec at the end of the season to join his hometown rugby league outfit Hull FC.
The 29-year-old, who was born in Hull and joined Bath from Newcastle Falcons in 2010, says that he's looking forward to the challenge of switching codes.
"Hull FC approached me and I’m very excited to have the chance to try my hand at league, and especially with my local club," he said.
"I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last few seasons here at Bath and am genuinely sad to be leaving. The supporters and everyone involved with the club have been fantastic whilst I’ve been here and I’ve been lucky to work with some great coaches and players.
"I’ve no doubt that the current squad will continue to develop over the next couple of years into a very exciting side.
"Now that the decision has been made, my focus is totally on Bath and making sure that I can do all I can to help us continue our good start to the season."
Biggs has made more than 80 appearances in his Bath career so far, scoring 120 points to date.
Head coach Gary Gold added: "Tom has been a huge asset to Bath Rugby whilst he’s been here and a complete professional on and off the field.
"We’ll miss his commitment and skill in matches and training, and his dry sense of humour. We’re obviously sad to be losing him, but this is a fantastic opportunity for Biggsy and we wish him the very best of luck."
