Bath move invigorated Day

Date published: August 5 2015

New Wales cap Dominic Day has credited his move to the Premiership with Bath for kick-starting his career.

The 29-year-old spent a large part of his career in the PRO12 with the Scarlets before heading to the Recreation Ground in 2012.

Day will line up in the second-row for Wales alongside Luke Charteris this weekend against Ireland in Cardiff for his first cap as Wales continue their preparations for the Rugby World Cup.

Having turned a corner since his move to England, Day believes that he "had gone stale" with the Scarlets after a run of injuries.

"The move gave me the kick-start that I needed," revealed Day to the Western Telegraph.

"I had gone stale and that was nobody's fault but my own.

"It was good to have a change of environment and it's a quality set-up with world class players.

"It's really helped me push my game along. I knew that I couldn't just go there and go through the motions. I have pushed myself hard and it has paid dividends."
