The Best XV of Players Who Are Out of Contract in 2020

4. Nick Isiekwe – Saracens

The 6’7 lock would be an incredible signing for any Gallagher Premiership club. With Maro Itoje, Will Sketon and George Kruis on huge contracts, Saracens may not have the budget to keep hold of upstart. If Tigers let a number of internationals leave this summer, Isiekwe could be the sort of star they target to improve their faltering pack.

Prediction: Joining Tigers, but this is just a guess


5. Devin Toner – Leinster

London Irish are looking to recruit the towering Ireland international when his contract at Leinster expires at the end of the season. The 33-year-old isn’t sure about the opportunity as he contemplates retirement.

Prediction: Will hang up his large boots


6. Cory Hill – Dragons

The Dragons will want to keep Hill, a leader who never fails to front up. But there is speculation their great rivals Cardiff Blues are keen to lure him to the Arms Park.

Prediction: No idea


7. Justin Tipuric – Ospreys

He is reportedly weighing up a £500,000-a-year offer to move to Ashton Gate with Bristol Bears. It’s also reported that Clermont Auvergne, Toulon and Toulouse are also interested in the 73-cap world-class openside.

Prediction: Joining Bristol


8. Ross Moriarty – Dragons

His two-year contract with the Dragons expires at the end of the season and, according to The Rugby Paper, Exeter boss Rob Baxter has identified him as someone he’d love to bring to Sandy Park. Lyon, Montpellier and Toulon are also said to be interested in Moriarty.

Prediction: Exeter-bound
