Rugby Rumours: Circling a Shark, Racing for Boffelli, Quins' Teddy and Vakatawa at Glaws


Circling a Shark:

England international Manu Tuilagi has had a fairly impactful start to his Premiership experience in the North West with Sale Sharks on his short-term contract.

Unfortunately for Sale, they are looking less and less likely to keep his services in the 21/22 season as Top 14 sides Racing 92 and Montpellier circle closer.

Racing for Boffelli:

Simon Zebo has been in the Top 14 since 2018 with 26 starts and 16 tries to his name, but Racing are looking to recruit a youthful replacement.

They are supposedly homing in on the services of 25 year-old Argentinian international Emiliano Boffelli who was previously with the Jaguares in Super Rugby.

Quins' Teddy:

Reports in France suggest that international winger Teddy Thomas is being chased by Premiership side Harlequins for the coming 21/22 season.

The 21 year-old would undoubtedly be the high profile winger they look for to fill the shoes of Vereniki Goneva and Gabriel Ibitoye at the Twickenham Stoop.

Vakatawa at Glaws:

Gloucester are hunting a margue signing for the new season, and they have French international centre Virimi Vakatawa firmly in their sights.

The 28 year-old seems to be a Premiership favourite with Bath Rugby, Northampton Saints and Sale Sharks also keen to invest in a future with Vakatawa.
