Batty's rugby career began at the infamous rugby school of Barnard Castle. A hooker by trade, Batty's dynamism in the loose sets him apart from your average no.2.
Having joined Bath Rugby from Rotherham Titans in 2010, Batty is now one of the key hookers at the Club.
A product of the Newcastle Falcons academy, Batty grew into his own as a player following a spell in New Zealand. There he developed his game, first at the NZ International Rugby Academy then on loan at NPC team Wairarapa-Bush, before returning to Falcons as a full-time professional.
In January 16, 2017, he extended his stay at Bath by a further two years.
An incredibly mobile forward who poses a threat in the loose and at the set-piece, Batty heads into the 2018/19 season having made over 140 appearances to date in the Blue, Black and White.
As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Batty has had 34 European Cups appearances scoring 5 tries and 25 points.
