Leigh Halfpenny is the latest household name to be linked with Wasps as director of rugby Dai Young outlines his intent to make high-calibre signings for next season.
Wasps lose All Black Charles Piutau to Ulster at the end of the season and will need a replacement, but a week after denying an offer has been tabled for Leicester wrecking-ball Manu Tuilagi, Young has distanced himself from Halfpenny.
"Leigh Halfpenny is an obvious one because of the Piutau situation - we have got Rob Miller as well, he is an England Saxon in his own right.
"I know Leigh really well. I was at Cardiff when he came through the system. We all know he is a quality player. So is Manu." Young said.
Guilhem Guirado is strong favourite to take over the role of French captain from stalwart Thierry Dusautoir.
Philippe Saint-Andre reached the last 8 with France in the RWC, but were put to the sword by New Zealand. Guirado is giving coach Saint-Andre time and space for this big descision.
"For now, I am not aware of anything. We will let the France staff take the time to think carefully" Guirado said.
Its been reported that Kyle Eastmond isn't happy with the current England situation in Union, he's one of the form centres in the Premiership and still isn't getting a look in at international level.
Will Eddie Jones change his fortunes, or could this be the final blow to Eastmond's hopes of another England cap that sends him cross-codes, back to league...?
The 25-year-old is thought to be one of Bath's two marquee signings - Welsh compatriot Rhys Priestland is the other - ensuring his wages of £400,000 are not counted towards the £6.5million salary cap.
