NEWS: Sam Underhill is set to leave Ospreys at the end of this season after signing a contract with Premiership side Bath.

Underhill was contracted at Ospreys until 2018, however, Bath have paid a transfer fee making is possible for the player to move at the end of the season.

Already catching the eye of England head coach Eddie Jones, the young star's switch to Bath has made the 20-year-old eligible for England selection.
