Freddie Burns will depart the Premiership this summer and head overseas to play in Japan’s Top Challenge League.
The Bath fly-half confirmed in a Instagram post he will exit the Rec to join Tokyo-based Shokki Shuttles, who play in Japan’s second tier of club rugby.
Burns’ time in the Premiership has spanned a decade and started at Gloucester, where he made over 130 appearances before joining Leicester Tigers in 2014.
He wrote on Instagram: “Feel immense pride to have played with, for and against the best players, clubs and supporters around.
“It’s been one hell of a journey. English rugby, for now, it’s been a pleasure. Next stop @shokki_shuttles.”
