LIST | Four superstars who almost moved to the Premiership

​There are always a few rugby tales of the big transfers that were tipped to take place and change the landscape of the rugby world forever but never materialised.

Here are four superstars that almost move to the Premiership, but didn’t.

1. David Pocock to Wasps

Hot on the heels of landing fly half Danny Cipriani for next season, Wasps reportedly made an audacious attempt to bring David Pocock to the Premiership in a potential deal that would make the Australia flanker the highest paid rugby player in the world. According to The Telegraph, they would offer him a package in excess of the £1.4 million. This would have been one of the biggest transfers ever.
