Mike's Irish move:

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Richard Cockerill has taken over the head coach role from Mike Ford at Toulon.

But it has been rumoured that he is being approached by Munster with Rassie Erasmus suspected to return to South Africa.

Steyn to Worcs:

The failed merger between Stade Francais and Racing 92 seems to have sent waves of discomfort through the Stade ranks.

South Africian international Morne Steyn is to jump ship, and is in talks with Worcester Warriors on a move.

Narbonne from Glaws:

Journeyman tighthead prop Salesi Ma'afu is reportedly leaving Gloucester next season for pastures new.

Not one to outstay his welcome the Australian International is looking at a move to France, with Pro D2 club Narbonne.

Bath's Prop struggle:

Bath aren't having much luck in the Prop department this season, with Max Lahiff newest player to fall victim with a hamstring injury.

Todd Blackadder and co are allegedly searching through the Championship and National Leagues for some much needed cover.
