The biggest rugby transfer flop from the last five seasons

We take a look back at the biggest rugby transfer flop from the last five seasons.

Here, we look at five big-money signings who flopped massively in each of the last five years.

First on the list is former Harlequins winger Ibitoye. Having fallen out with the London club, he signed for Agen for the 2020/21 Top 14 season, but his cross-channel move completely flopped. After being released mid-season for his attitude behind the scenes, the 22-year-old joined Montpellier as a medical joker before being released again at the end of the season.
