“Big money offer” – Scotland want FOUR players to swap nations for the Rugby World Cup

We take a look at four rugby union players who could swap nations to represent Scotland at the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

Nobody has more players born overseas in the Six Nations than the Scots, with 21 of their current squad hailing from other countries.

This method of talent spotting has helped Gregor Townsend transform his squad from fodder into genuine title contenders.

He’s also not done, with five more players linked with changing their allegiances prior to the fast approaching 2023 Rugby World Cup.

#1. Mosese Tuipulotu

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the uncapped Waratahs centre commitment to Australia will be tested by an offer from Scotland worth almost three times his current salary.

The Melbourne-born younger brother of Scotland’s Sione Tuipulotu, Tuipulotu, has been selected to make his senior debut this week and will be on the bench to play against the Hurricanes in Wellington on Friday.

This is yet another indication of the challenge Australia is encountering in holding onto its top talent, as there are reports circulating within Scottish rugby circles that the Scotland Rugby Union is interested in signing the 21-year-old on a multi-year contract worth up to $225,000 (£125,000) annually.
