Gallagher Premiership teams on the hunt for a free transfer can still find a host of stars available for nothing with Newcastle Falcons snapping up Scotland international John Hardie this afternoon.
NOTE: Yes we did write the article this morning and had to change it just hours later (Darn you, John!)
But here are five other players still available:
1. Guy Mercer
Not even 20 months ago, Mercer was the club captain of Bath Rugby. But in August he has now left the team he grew up loving with two years left to run on a three-year contract.
A new club, at home or abroad, and a fresh start away could rejuvenate the tenacious flanker. He deserves a break. The best of luck to him.
