“Eye-Opening and Honest” Jack Willis talks Wasps Collapse and Learns French

#5. Jack Nowell

Nowell looks set to continue the English exodus from Exeter to France after Rob Baxter admitted he is planning for life without the Lions wing.

‘I’ve got to plan that Jack won’t be here because that’s the current situation,’ said Rob Baxter.

“The agreement we’ve got is that if I find a replacement player who I like the look of, we are going to sign them. Jack is aware of that. He is currently looking in the market.

“If he comes back to me prior to us signing anybody, we can talk. If he comes back after we sign someone who has replaced him and the salary-cap room is not there, then it’s not there. It is a very open scenario.

“I am assuming he is not here and I think he is assuming he’s going.”

Reports this week suggest he’s signed with European champions La Rochelle.
