Tom Heathcote relishing battle for Bath Rugby's number ten shirt

Tom Heathcote cannot wait to begin next season’s battle for the Bath Rugby fly-half jersey.

Following the departures of Stephen Donald and Sam Vesty, Heathcote will go head-to-head with new recruit George Ford when the squad regroup later this summer.

The arrival of a third fly-half is still expected at The Rec – a position with which Gavin Henson has been strongly linked – and Academy player Ollie Devoto is also under contract but it is 21-year-old Heathcote or Ford, one year his junior, who are likely to start at number ten on the first day of the next Aviva Premiership season.
