Ford enjoying Fotuali's partnership

George Ford admits he is excited about his budding half-back partnership with recent Bath signing Kahn Fotuali'i.

The Samoan international arrived at the Rec from Northampton during the summer and alongside Ford has helped the Somerset outfit win their opening two fixtures of the new campaign.

Todd Blackadder's men meet Worcester on Saturday and will be confident of extending their run against the Warriors.

Ford admits he is enjoying playing alongside the skilful scrum-half, admitting Fotuali'i has made a huge impact both on and off the field.

"He's been brilliant," Ford told the Bath Chronicle. "He's probably one of the best nines I've ever played with.

"His understanding of the game is second to none. His feel of the game - when to pass, when to kick, when to get the forwards into play, when to go to the backs - comes very natural to him.

"Kahn's such a nice lad off the field as well and I'm really looking forward to playing more with him."
