Scotland Under-18 cap Adam Hastings, son of former Scotland and Lions captain, Gavin, is moving closer to a contract at Bath after earning praise from the former European champions’ youth coach.
Earlier this season Hastings, a stand-off, turned out for Bath United against London Welsh in a Premiership reserve league fixture.
Now he has received honourable mention after the Bath Under-18s finished fourth in the Premiership youth championship.
Coach George Tavner said: “Adam Hastings is someone I think has got a really good future ahead of him.”
Hastings, jnr, left George Watson’s to study and pursue a rugby interest at Somerset’s Millfield College which has produced, among others, Welsh great Gareth Edwards and current England captain, Chris Robshaw.
A few weeks ago Millfield won the inaugural English Schools Champions Trophy with Hastings among the try scorers against Leeds Grammar at the home of Saracens.
Hastings was included in the wider Scotland Under-20 squad this season.
