One player each Aviva Premiership team should sign…

Bath: Lewis Ludlam
An interesting choice for Bath would be Ludlam. With Francois Louw growing ever older it’s time the black, blue and whites looked to a younger back rower.

With Taulupe Faletau and Sam Underhill bound to make up the basis of a strong back-row, they would lack an out and out heavy carrier which Ludlam would bring on top of his breakdown skills.

At the young age of 21, he’s ready to show his full potential and that would require game time which he currently isn’t getting at Northampton, so a move would be in his and the club’s best interests.


Harlequins: Leone Nakarawa
Harlequins have the grounds for a team that should finish in the top four more often than not but season after season they underachieve.

A specific reason is tough to pinpoint but signing Nakarawa would glue together some issues.

The way the lock plays the game with quick running and offloading would kick-start the Quins back-line and give their forward pack some much-needed energy.
