Nathan Hughes set for £500,000 a year move to Bristol - story on @MailSport now.

If true - that's a real blow to Wasps!

I think Skelton is heading back to the Tahs anyway so he must be on his way out from Sarries.

Considering Sarries have three locks in and around the England squad I'd be surprised if they let him go early. They've done a lot of work on his fitness and he's no longer dead on his feet after 30 minutes like he used to be. It's been a good move for him.

Ex-Tiger, Horacio Agulla has announced his retirement from rugby. The RWC 2007, 2011 and 2015 Pumas winger has said goodbye to the sport at the age of 34.

Was disappointed when we couldn't keep him here.

Do you think they will be getting Jordan in part exchange?
Jordan Crane would not give up his several lucrative franchised businesses in Bristol and move to Coventry where there are numerous established foreign car washes already. :smt006

Just seen that Gabriel Ibitoye is out of contract at the end of the season and Quins are yet to persuade him to re-sign. Wasps keen as a potential replacement for Wade.

Would be a kick in the teeth for Quins were he to leave...

Martin Gillingham tweeting...

"Far from chucking in the towel @mouradrct appears set to write even bigger cheques to re-launch his troubled @RCTofficiel. Signing of Nehe Milner-Skudder already widely trailed, now reports in France claim Sam Whitelock is poised to agree a deal with Eben Etzebeth not far behind."

...or should I still be posting stuff about Etzebeth in the Tigers Squad thread?

But according to posters on here Exeter don’t splash the cash on big name internationals who will be missing for the AI’s and 6N’s especially injury prone ones.

It’s like they know they need that star power to help them in the big European matches.

I do hope we are keeping one eye on the going ons at Chiefs. It's going to be a big test of their player management, as apparently they are quite stringent with their wage structure. Bringing Hogg in and not raising the wages of some of the players who have been part of the success in recent years could cause problems.

What makes you think he will be on a higher wage than their current high earners?
