Transfer Rumours: Northampton targeting monstrous replacement for Kieran Brookes
Northampton Saints are rumoured to be interested in signing powerhouse prop Jeffery Toomaga-Allan as Kieran Brookes replacement.
It was confirmed earlier this week that Brookes would be leaving Franklin’s Gardens after three years at the club.
TRANSFER RUMOUR: Very initial stages of this rumour, but hearing that Hurricanes tighthead prop Jeffery Toomaga-Allan could be Kieran Brookes’ replacement.
He’s on the verge of the All Black squad and would not require a very large contract. Would also follow Chris Boyd! pic.twitter.com/Qs5i6RR2bq

Rugby Inside Line has now suggested that incoming boss Chris Boyd is lining up a move for the All Black tighthead.
Toomaga-Allan is a formidable force in the front row, where his high-intensity scrummaging has proved troublesome for his opponents and has won three All Blacks caps.
