REPORTS | 2021 Six Nations could be Anthony Watson’s last

Bath and England superstar Anthony Watson could be on the move at the end of the season when his current deal ends.

Reports in France are suggesting Watson, who will be a free agent as things stand this summer, will be offered a huge contract to try and tempt him to join Racing 92, They are also thought to be interested in Manu Tuilagi.

DID YOU KNOW? In 2017, Anthony Watson started in all three tests for the Lions and was one of the stars of the tour.

Having represented England through the age-groups, he made his full international debut in November 2014 against New Zealand. Watson is now considered as an England regular, having won 44-caps.

However, according to RUCK sources, Racing are keen on recruiting the England flier as they expect Simon Zebo and Teddy Thomas to depart the club when their contracts expire next year.

Thomas has been identified as a long-term target by Harlequins, according to reports in France. Quins are looking for a high-profile wide man after Vereniki Goneva and Gabriel Ibitoye both departed Twickenham Stoop.

Another report in France suggests out of contract Zebo could be joining London Irish, but they do not cite a source for this report.

The 30-year-old, who accumulated 35 Ireland caps between 2012 and 2017, will also not be offered a new deal by the Parisians.
