BREAKING: Joe Simmonds the latest player to depart Exeter Chiefs

Billy Vunipola set to depart:

Reports today suggest that Saracens number 8 Billy Vunipola is set to depart the club and country after being dropped by Steve Borthwick ahead of the Six Nations.

According to The Rugby Paper, he is likely going to secure a move to either France or Japan after Saracens announced on Thursday that Tom Willis will join the club for next season.


Double signing to boost Bulls ranks:

The Vodacom Bulls will strengthen their squad by bringing two experienced South Africans back home from the northern hemisphere next season.

According to Sunday newspaper Rapport, Jannes Kirsten and utility back Henry Immelman have both signed for the Vodacom Bulls and are expected to arrive in Pretoria ahead of the 2022-23 season on 1 July.


Owen Farrell committed to rugby union:

A rumour linking England and Saracens fly-half with a more to rugby league side Wigan Warriors was jumpstarted once again last month.

Farrell is thought to be under contract at Saracens until at least 2024, making any return to the North West not imminent.

RUCK sources suggest that Farrell hasn’t completely shut the door on switching codes, but wants to stay at Saracens for the foreseeable future.

He remains committed to England and has the ambition to play for his country once again at the 2027 Rugby World Cup when he will be 35.
