One player each Aviva Premiership team should sign…

RUCK’s George Whiffen has assessed the squads of all 12 sides and has looked to find a player each team could realistically land in the future.

Exeter Chiefs: Nick Isiekwe
Isiekwe is 19, recently made his first appearance in an England jersey in a friendly against the Barbarians and is full of talent.

Unfortunately, the young second rower is already behind George Kruis and Maro Itoje in the Saracens pecking order and it’s only going to get tougher for him following the recent arrival of Dominic Day and Will Skelton.

A move to Exeter could be the answer. Isiekwe could excel under the coaching of Rob Baxter and in the team environment of the Chiefs for a long time to come.


Saracens: Tadhg Furlong
Saracens are a team that doesn’t need to do a lot of business in the transfer market now, with a prospering Academy and such a strong starting XV.

However, this summers Lions tour showed us how much of a dominant force the front three of Mako Vunipola, Jamie George and Furlong can be.

They excelled together, meaning Furlong would be a perfect fit at Saracens thanks to his abrasive carrying and relentless scrummaging.
