BATH have confirmed that Wales international fly-half Rhys Priestland is set to leave the club at the end of the season.

Priestland joined Bath in 2015 and has made over 60 appearances in Blue, Black and White since his arrival from Welsh side Scarlets.

Bath director of rugby Todd Blackadder said: “Rhys has been an influential figure not only on the field but in his leadership off the field over the last four years.

“There’s still a lot of rugby to play between now and the end of the season, and I have no doubt he’ll play a key role in the next six months.”
