Dickson to Sale:

The current Northampton Saints' scrum-half Lee Dickson is rumoured to be moving to Sale Sharks next season.

With Peter Stringer coming to the end of his career, and the likelyhood of them recruiting Ben Spencer from Saracens minimal.

Beale's short-stay:

Michael Cheika, Australia's head coach, is apparently desperate to have Kurtley Beale back in Super Rugby sooner than later, as he looks to keep the international depth close to home with the Waratahs.

There is a clause in his contracting meaning he could leave after one year with Wasps. Although he has enough caps to stay in Europe and still be selected for the Wallabies under 'Giteau's Law'.

Crotty to Bristol:

Even though Bristol's Aviva Premiership status very much uncertain that hasn't stopped them chasing the big names, recently recruiting All Black Steven Luatua.

The allure of high wages along with Pat Lam at the helm has them chasing New Zealand centre Ryan Crotty, and there's reason to believe TJ Perenara is on their radar too.

Strauss out:

There we three players announced yesterday to be leaving Glasgow Warriors, with the Scotland international 8 being one of them (along with Gordon Reid and Mark Bennett).

The back-rower has impressed in his recent 6 Nations performances, but rumour has it Josh Strauss will leave Scotland for the Aviva Premiership.
