Ruan Pienar could sway the way of Saracens instead of Montpellier at the end of the season once his contract is up at Ulster. The IRFU declined him resigning to an Irish province so he will be moving to pastures new. It seems that he will be gooing to the Aviva Premiership and Saracens rather the Top 14 and Montpellier.
Bristol’s star fullback, Jason Woodward, seems set for a move at next season. He has a clause in his contract so if Bristol get relegated he will be allowed to leave. He would cost about £350,000 a year but if Altrad takes over at Gloucester, there will be no problem with the money. Especially with James Hook going back to Ospreys, this certainly seems like a good move for the Kiwi and for the Cherry and Whites.
Gloucester’s Tongan back rower, Sione Kalamafoni, seems set to be off to Leicester Tigers next year after lack of play at Kingsholm.
Lee Dickson seems set to leave the Northampton Saints at the end of the season when his contract expires. He has been at the Saints since 2008 but Sale seem to be very keen in talking to him.
Harlquins are expected to announce the signing of England U20, Lewis Boyce. Boyce won the World Cup with England U20’s and after a few years at Yorkshire Carnegie, he wants a change to the Premiership.
