Bath pursue Butch James compensation from South Africa

Bath have confirmed they are seeking compensation from South Africa Rugby for the injury sustained by their star fly-half Butch James.

The 30-year-old Springbok damaged his right shoulder while on Tri Nations duty and will be out until November.

"We're making enquiries because when he's injured elsewhere there's a responsibility to look after him," said performance director Sir Ian McGeechan.

"We're now monitoring him here following a successful operation."

McGeechan continued: "He's already back with the players but we feel there is a responsibility to take when and where those injuries occur."
