Bath Rugby transfers: 4 realistic replacements for Rhys Webb
Bath are set to lose two scrum-halves in the summer with Rhys Webb joining the Ospreys and Will Chudley set to be a free agent.
Webb was only ever join on a short-term deal having already agreed on a move to the Welsh Region, moving to the Rec after his deal at Toulon was terminated.
Meanwhile, Chudley has started eight Premiership games this season with another three appearances off the bench as he and Chris Cook have competed for the nine jersey for most of the 2019/20 campaign.
Here are four possible signings they could make:
1. Ben Spencer
The Saracens and England playmaker has been heavily linked with a move to the Rec, and certain reports suggest he’s already signed a three-year contract. However, two months on we’ve still had no confirmation, meaning we’ve had a look at some other options available to Bath boss Stuart Hooper.
