Vesty happy to be Bath Rugby's man for all seasons

Versatility is as much a curse as it is a blessing but Bath Rugby's Sam Vesty insists he is happy to fill in wherever required for Gary Gold's side.

The 30-year-old made his first start for the West Country club in the 16-10 Aviva Premiership defeat to Gloucester Rugby last weekend at Kingsholm, slotting in at inside centre.
However the former Leicester Tigers utility back is equally at home at fly-half or full-back and is adamant that as long as he is playing he doesn't mind where he starts.

And he admits that the departure of teammate Olly Barkley to Racing M├ętro means that he will have to step up in the Bath backline.

He said: "I'm happy to play wherever for Bath. I know there are some guys who think they should stick to playing one position and only want to play there but I've always been happy wherever I start.

"I can play at fly-half, inside centre or full-back I really don't mind.
