#4. Juarno Augustus (Northampton Saints)
- Age: 23
- Position: Number 8
One of the most intriguing moves of the summer saw the powerful number eight swap Cape Town for the Midlands after agreeing on a deal with Saints. A star at age-grade level – named World Young Player of the Year in 2017 – but that form hasn’t translated into senior rugby thus far.
Everything on paper suggests he will struggle with the physicality of the Gallagher Premiership – but aged 23 he certainly still has time on his side.
