Bath head coach departs just one game into the season

Bath head coach Tabai Matson is to leave his role with the Premiership club for family reasons.

Matson arrived at The Rec from New Zealand side Crusaders with director of rugby Todd Blackadder in July 2016.


The 44-year-old will return to New Zealand after Bath’s Premiership game against Northampton Saints on Friday.

“This has been an incredibly tough decision for me. I have enjoyed every minute at Bath,” former Fiji centre Matson told the club website.

“We have such a great group of players here who I believe will achieve great success.

“Ultimately, I have made the decision that as a family, we need to be at home in New Zealand, and I appreciate the club’s understanding.”
