#4. Jonathan Joseph
Last month The Rugby Paper reported that Top 14 glamour side Toulon had ‘opened talks’ with the former British and Irish Lion over moving to the Cote d-Azur despite Bath Rugby CEO Tarquin McDonald confirming in February that Joseph, along with fellow England stars Beno Obano and Anthony Watson are all in contract for at least the 2021/22 season.
This week French newspaper Le Figaro report a technical malfunction on Toulon’s webstie effectively saw them announce the signing of Joseph over the weekend before removing the post.
However, an empty player profile with the URL Jonathan Joseph can still be found on the Top 14 side’s website further adding fuel to the fire.Embed from Getty Images
