Bath transfer target Handre Pollard is set to confirm his move to Europe, but it’s not to the south coast of England.
The Springbok fly-half is instead set to sign a contract with Montpellier, who he’ll join following the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The 24-year-old has played for the Blue Bulls since 2013 but also did a season in Japan, playing for NTT DoCoMo Red Hurricanes.
South Africa Schools and Under-20 representation at three World Championships led to him making his full Springboks debut in 2014.
He now has 39 caps and has established himself as the Boks’ first-choice ten.
