Reds to Chiefs:

Australian international lock Rob Simmons is reportedly being scouted by Aviva Priemership's number one side, Exeter Chiefs

With the departure of Geoff Parling to the Melbourne Rebels, there is a vacancy for a first class second row with the champions of English rugby.

Moriaty wanted by Saints:

Another reprocussion from the departure of French international Louis Picamoles is that there is a rather large hole left by the number 8.

So Northampton Saints plan to fill it with the British and Irish Lion Ross Moriarty, who will come with a huge price tag from Gloucester.


Tigers hunt Eastmond:

Coming from Bath Rugby, Kyle Eastmond wasn't exactly the flavour of the season in terms of his first team starts for Wasps in this years' Premiership.

Opportunities could come more consistently with Leicester Tigers next season, if he can fit in their backline with Manu and their Aussie import Matt Toomua.

French move for Nayacalevu:

The Fijian international Waisea Nayacalevu is looking outside of Paris for his rugby next season, rumour has it Toulon are putting a bid in.

After a hugely impressive season Josua Yuisova had for the French giants, he will stand a better chance of a first team jersey looking at the opposite wing...
