Rugby Pass has reported today that Louis Lynagh is nearing his departure from Harlequins as his contract concludes at the end of the season in the Gallagher Premiership. The emerging speculation suggests that he might be making a move to the United Rugby Championship.
The 23-year-old, son of former Wallaby great Michael Lynagh, known for his versatility as an exciting outside back comfortable at fullback or on the wing, seems poised to follow in his father’s footsteps.
Rugby transfer expert Neil Fissler, now with Rugby Pass, indicates that Lynagh is likely to join Benetton, the Treviso franchise, which has become the frontrunner in the competition for his signature.
Having left a mark in Harlequins’ history with two crucial tries in the Premiership Final victory over Exeter, Lynagh’s career has faced setbacks due to significant injuries.
The unexpected move to Treviso could offer a fresh start and potentially determine Lynagh’s international allegiance.
Despite eligibility for England through residency, Australia through his father, and Italy through his birth and Italian-born mother, Lynagh has kept his international options open.
While the Italian national team, Azzurri, has expressed interest in recruiting Lynagh on multiple occasions, he has yet to commit. However, with no indication of a recall from Steve Borthwick, the possibility of a sensational switch for the talented winger is gaining momentum.
