Saints after Biggar:

With J. J. Hanrahan moving on it leaves Northampton Saints with clubman Stephen Myler being their sole provider, it leaves a concerning lack of depth at 10.

Saints approached Welsh international fly-half Dan Biggar with a 'offer he can't refuse', the deal is unlikely to go ahead though with his dual contract running into 2018.

Owens eyes Pau:

Ken Owens has been reportedly talking with French Top 14 side Pau, over a potential switch from Scarlets

The 30 year old Hooker has left the Pro 12 side scrambling for a contract extension with his current one ending in the Summer.

Ashley-Cooper out of France:

Adam Ashley-Cooper has only been with Bordeaux beagles since 2015 but it appears he is on the move.

London irish have been thrown into the mix but with the Australian international looking for top dollar it seems more likely he will move to the ambitious Japanese top League.

Cockerill a free agent:

Richard Cockerill's contract comes to and end with Toulon, and I'm sure with the new culture he's brought some players won't mind his departure.

Edinburgh are frontrunners for his services but he's also attracting plenty of attention from within the Top 14.
