Henry Thomas has labelled Bath Rugby’s coaching team as the best in the Aviva Premiership following his arrival at The Rec.
Former King Edward’s schoolboy Thomas has long been expected to make a big impact in England’s front-row and believes a summer switch to his hometown club from Sale Sharks will give him the best chance to fulfil that potential.
Bath’s pack was seen as the fulcrum of their success last season, while Toby Booth and Neal Hatley are amongst the most respected forwards coaches in English rugby.
And tighthead prop Thomas says their dedication to the hard graft up front made it an easy choice to head back to the South West.
