Anthony Watson set for unexpected Premiership switch

Leicester Tigers are in negotiations with Anthony Watson regarding a move to the East Midlands, according to The Rugby Paper.

The England and British and Irish Lions speedster, who has been out injured since October, has been offered a new deal to stay at Bath but is stalling on putting pen to paper.

Watson has also been linked with moves to Sale Sharks and his former club, London Irish.

Having represented England through the age groups, he made his full international debut in November 2014 against New Zealand and has since gone on to achieve over 50 caps for his nation, marking his 50th outing with a try against France in the 2021 Six Nations.

For Bath, Watson earned his debut in a 21-0 win over Newcastle Falcons in 2013 alongside the likes of Jonathan Joseph and Semesa Rokoduguni and crossed for his first club try in a 27-27 draw against Leicester Tigers later in the same season.

Becoming a Bath centurion in the 2018 /19 season, Watson has proved an influential figure to both the young and senior players within in the squad.
