England international set for shock code switch ahead World Cup

#2. Nathan Hughes to Clermont

Bath and London Irish are set to miss out to Clermont in the race to sign former England Number 8.

The Top 14 side are close to wrapping up a deal for the No8 and he is set to join them in the summer when his current £500,000-a-year contract expires.

A move to France will mean he is officially unable to play for England, but he has recently been linked with switching allegiances to Fiji anyway under new eligibility laws introduced by World Rugby in January.
