Bath Rugby have announced that Steve Meehan will be leaving the Club at the end of the season, by mutual agreement.

He has been instrumental in developing our style of play over the past few seasons and has taken us to three consecutive Premiership semi-finals and won the Challenge Cup in 2008.

Commenting on the move, Nick Blofeld, Bath Rugby CEO said “We wish Steve all the best for his future after Bath Rugby and thank him for his contribution and commitment over the past few seasons.  With significant changes at the Club and a new strategy and direction in place we have mutually agreed that it is a good point for Steve to seek a new challenge and we wish him luck wherever he goes.”

Steve Meehan said “Over the past five years we’ve developed our style of play, played some terrific rugby, won the respect of all the clubs in the Premiership and challenged some of the biggest teams in Europe.  It’s been a challenging yet enjoyable period but the timing is right for me to move on at the end of this season and I wish the team every success in years to come. However, the key part of this season is now upon us and before I leave I will be doing everything I can to ensure we are in the play offs and going for the title.”
