Transfer Rumours: Jamie Roberts leaving Harlequins for Premiership rivals

Wales legend Jamie Roberts will be leaving Harlequins at the end of the season but he might not be heading to Japan as was widely reported.

Noted as one of the best carriers of the ball, Roberts has enjoyed spells at Cardiff Blues, Racing Metro and Cambridge University as well as a decorated international career.

The powerhouse centre was thought to be moving to Asia along with players such as Dan Carter to promote the sport ahead of next year’s forthcoming Rugby World Cup.

However, Rugby Inside Line has revealed that Roberts may be staying in the Premiership and has reportedly held talks with Bath over a move to the Rec.


The black, blue and whites are on the hunt for a new inside-centre after it was confirmed Ben Tapuai would be heading the opposite way and joining Quins in the summer.

It’s also been confirmed today prop Nick Auterac will be leaving Bath to make his way over to Twickenham Stoop at the end of the season.
