RUMOUR | Anthony Watson edges closer to move away from Bath

England speedster Anthony Watson is set to leave Bath at the end of the 2020/21 Premiership season, according to RUCK sources.

The 26-year-old, who had been linked with a move to Racing 92, is instead being linked with Quins.

Quins are looking to strengthen their back-three options for next season with Mike Brown reportedly joining Newcastle Falcons, while Chris Ashton could be joining Worcester Warriors.

 The England International has made 105 appearances for Bath since signing from London Irish in 2013 and has portrayed his secure defence and elusive attacking style for his country, as well as representing the British and Irish Lions in 2017.

Having represented England through the age-groups, he made his full international debut in November 2014 against New Zealand and is now considered as an England regular.


Utilised by the Red Rose on the wing, by the summer of 2016, Watson’s red-hot form had seen him score 12 tries in 24 international matches.
