Priestland excited for Bath future
Fly-half Rhys Priestland believes the future is bright for Bath after putting pen to paper on a contract extension.
The 32-year-old's future has been widely speculated on over recent months, having suggested in January that he could leave, but he has finally put those rumours to bed.
Bath confirmed a two-year deal, which runs until the end of 2020-21, was officially signed on Friday and they can now get back to focusing on their performances.
Priestland admits it is an "important" contract at a key stage of his career and is excited to continue on his adventure with the Gallagher Premiership side.
"It's taken a while to get to this point but the process has been completely transparent all the way," Priestland told Bath's official website.
"This has always been an incredibly important contract for me at this stage of my career and I am delighted to be staying at the club. We are all striving to be better at what we do every day from the squad to the coaches and I really believe that our best performances lie ahead of us."
