Sam Underhill switch to Bath confirmed as flanker becomes available for England
Bath have confirmed the signing of flanker Sam Underhill from Ospreys on a three year deal for the start of the 2017/18 season.
Underhill, 20, has swapped Pro12 rugby for the Aviva Premiership, meaning he will finally be available for England selection.
England head coach Eddie Jones has been keen to utilise Underhill's services but the RFU's strict policy on selecting overseas-based players had hindered any hopes of a potential call-up - until now.
