REVEALED: Every Premiership club’s worst transfer of all-time – including Rob Baxter’s disaster

Gloucester: Chris Paterson

This one is still quite baffling. The Gloucester faithful thought they’d made a game-changing signing when Scotland’s record point-scorer moved to Kingsholm in 2007. Boy were they wrong.

Paterson’s spell with the Cherry & whites was largely disappointing and the fullback left to return to Edinburgh at the end of his first season in the Premiership. He made just 14 uninspiring appearances.

Harlequins: Paul Sackey

A winger with an eye for a try almost everywhere he went, but one who played like he had no eyes at all at Quins.

The speedster returned to England following stints with Toulon and Stade Francais, moving to Twickenham Stoop ahead of the 2013/14 season.

However, following one less than impressive season at Twickenham Stoop, scoring just two tries, the England international hung up his boots. Past it.

London Irish: Andy Goode

Trained with the Exiles for a few weeks before deciding it wasn’t for him and retired. The one-time Premiership record points-scorer then resurfaced at Newcastle in December 2015 where his experience and prolific boot saved them from relegation with London Irish going down. Made it onto the Rugby Players’ Association Player of the Year shortlist.
