Henry Thomas set to join Bath
December 22, 2013
The Rugby Paper claims that England prop Henry Thomas has agreed a move to Bath for next season after rejecting a new contract with Sale Sharks.
Thomas, 22, won two England caps against Argentina last summer and is outlined as one of the stars of the future.
The paper says a deal with Thomas was lined up by former director of rugby Gary Gold before he left Bath.
In a double blow for Sale, flanker James Gaskell is also preparing to leave with Wasps favourite to sign him.
