BREAKING: Courtney Lawes travelling this week to complete move away from Northampton

Former England captain Courtney Lawes is poised to jet off to Brive this week to finalise his much-anticipated transfer from Northampton Saints.

The 35-year-old, who recently retired from international duty after a stellar career, is set to ink a lucrative deal with the French club.

Lawes, who notched up an impressive 105 England Test caps, is eyeing a fresh start as he looks to secure his family’s financial future.

According to Rugby Pass, Lawes will be in attendance at Brive’s Pro D2 clash against Valence Romans at Stade Amedee-Domenech this Friday night, coinciding with his birthday.

Fans could witness the big unveiling of Lawes as Brive’s latest star signing during the match.

Sources suggest that Lawes has agreed to a hefty £360,000 per year contract with Brive, underlining the club’s determination to secure his services by paying private education for his children.

Brian Moore tells Steve Borthwick to make FOUR changes to his England XV for Scotland clash

Brian Moore has called on head coach Steve Borthwick to make four changes for the Calcutta Cup clash with Scotland at Murrayfield this Saturday.

Strong scrum:

He wrote: “I would consider picking England’s strongest scrummaging front row of Joe Marler, Jamie George and Dan Cole.

“It is not that Will Stuart has underperformed at tighthead, but if England have a chance of getting on top in this important set-piece, better that they do it early and, as they now always say, paint the right picture for Andrew Brace, the referee.”
