Quade Cooper to Bath would be awful for them, I really can't see how Quade would cope in the AP

Slade to Bath or Wasps seems odd too

Slade is a fantastic rugby player, but imho he is 10 and potentially a world class one. Any club that could offer him the 10 shirt would be of interest to him

I agree but both Bath and Wasps have top class 10's themselves, Steenson isn't getting any younger so I'd be highly surprised if Slade left, must be agent talk IMO

maybe selling himself as 12?

Bath
10) ford
12) Slade
13) Joesph

Wasps
10) cips
12) Slade
13) Daly

He won't leave IMO Exeter playing well he is a starter and he is a product of Exeter's academy. But Baxter wanting to start talks, therefore Agents need big spending clubs to help boost up a price.

Ben Ransom on Twitter: "Awesome to play with a great bunch of guys today in what could have been my last game for @Saracens."

Hmmm...could be interesting, particularly if Tait does go to Gloucs!

Who was the last Sarries player to come to Tigers? Excluding Goodie I can only think of Chris Tarbuck.

Wasps are in talks with Armitage according to Gavin Mortimer on twitter...I wouldn't waste my money I think Young is class but will be interesting if they do..

The Maitland to Sarries rumour is slightly worrying..hasn't really been as good as his Crusader days but has it in him to be a great player

I would guess that Wasps are looking to replace George Smith and add some depth.
AP Transfer for 2016/17 season:
Bath:
IN:
Luke Charteris (Racing Metro), Taulupe Faletau (Newport Gwent Dragons), elliot Stooke (Glous), Van Vurren (Leicester Tigers), Harry Williams (Cardiff Blues)
OUT:
Will Spencer (Worcester Warriors), Ollie Devoto (Exeter Chiefs), Rob Webber (Sale),
Bath's business so far is interesting, Luke Charteris is a player I rate very highly and with Faletau added and Webber going which leaves Batty as a potential starter and their pack will be much improved IMO.

There will be some seriously good Welsh players playing in England next season plus some up and coming, must be almost if not an entire squad.
