Wales number eight

Bath fined for releasing Faletau

Faletau was allowed to feature in a 24-22 victory over the Springboks at the Principality Stadium on December 2 despite the Test falling outside World Rugby's international window.

Bath had been aware that sanctions could be imposed for giving the number eight the green light to line up for his country.

The Premiership club on Wednesday confirmed they have been slapped with a fine and called for a change of regulations.
