Still Bath time for James

RUGBY UNION: Bath fly-half Butch James has moved to quash rumours he is to leave the club at the end of the season.

James, 31, was rumoured to be planning a return to his native South Africa to join the Stormers for the 2011 Super 14 season.

But management company Prosport Int. have denied the claims with managing director Craig Livingstone saying: “Butch James has not signed for the Stormers for 2011 despite media reports. His contract with Bath runs until June 2012.”
