Eight GREAT rugby internationals who are set to be FREE agents

5. Brodie Retallick – New Zealand – 75 caps

The All Black is out of contract with New Zealand Rugby and the Chiefs at the end of the year and has yet to announce what the future holds for him. He had been linked with Sale Sharks but the second-row moved quickly to squash those rumours. null

6. Jack Lam – Samoa – 32 caps

The hard ball carrying backrower is almost certainly going to the Rugby World Cup this autumn with Samoa but at the moment he will do so without a club. The 31-year-old still has a lot to give and would be an incredible signing for any Championship club.
