Jonny Hill the Chiefs lock. He toured with England in South Africa but hasn't been capped yet.

Ah ok many thanks.
He is very impressive, but don’t think he’s ahead of Launchbury, Itoje and Lawes yet.

Fairly certain the next lock off the cab rank for England is Ewels, very much in the same mould as Kruis, great at the set piece. Pity he’s currently injured but could be back for the six nations.

Isiekwe has also looked good this season for Sarries. Feel that Stooke and Hill are no more than good premiership standard players.

He's the best set piece lock in England IMO so he is a loss.
In terms of lineout he’s brilliant but there’s a year or two left in Lawes at an international level to steady the ship and that’s enough time to develop Isiekwe or Hill (surprised to not see his name touted more)?
If you mean Ted Hill, he is much more of a back rower. Stookes name is being mentioned by quite a few pundits
No I meant Jonny Hill.

I’m reading Freddie Burns to Wasps and Billy Searle to Worcester.

With Umagas rise up the ranks, would that spell the end of Lima Sopanga at Wasps. Would you have him at Tigers ?

Based on what we've seen probs not. Hasn't exactly set the world on fire at Wasps. Get the feeling he misses home to much which has had an impact on his game.

Searle to Warriors is confirmed, Burns to Wasps isn't. I would also say no to Sopoaga I would let him go home.

Same, for half the money maybe as he was a very talented player before he arrived in Coventry, but no team can afford two luxury 10s and the one we have is way better.

Cobus Reinach is leaving Northampton at the end of the season, whatever you think about the “auld enemy” surely one of the best signings a club has made in the last 10 years.

Off to Montpelier for what one imagines must be a whole mountain of cash. One of those individuals you feel lucky to have watched play, even if his jersey was the wrong shade of green!

Being quoted as around €500k euros a season

Good player and a cracking points/games record.Saints will need a top quality replacement.

I believe that Saints have got two very promising young scrum halves, Mitchell and the famous AN Other, who will be in contention for the 9 shirt.

Despite the rumours of a fallout Dombrandt has re-signed at Quins.
