Anthony Watson, Charlie Ewels, Nathan Catt and Elliott Stooke have penned contract extensions with Bath. The Gallagher Premiership outfit recently rewarded Taulupe Faletau, Semesa Rokoduguni, Zach Mercer and Beno Obano with new deals, and the announcement of four more players signing up continues their push for long-term stability.
England wing Watson is the standout name to be rewarded in the latest group, despite currently being sidelined with an Achilles issue.
Director of Rugby Todd Blackadder told the club’s official website: “Ant is one of those rare players who is incredibly talented yet so hungry to learn and get better every day.
“His performances for Bath have earned him games at the very highest level with England and the Lions, he is a role model to our players with his work ethic and commitment to the club.
“He’s currently out with an Achilles injury but that has not stopped him working tirelessly with our medical team to ensure he gets back to the field performing at the levels he expects of himself asap. We’re really looking forward to seeing him back in the Blue, Black and White in the New Year.”
Bath currently sit eighth in the standings after six games of the 2018-19 campaign as they look to improve on last year’s sixth-place finish.
