“Up For Grabs” – The Ex-Premiership Free Agents On the Market Today

The 2022/23 Gallagher Premiership season was one like no other, as we witnessed the financial collapses of Worcester Warriors, Wasps and London Irish.

These three clubs flooded the transfer market with high-quality free agents, with the majority of the players being signed to new contracts. Bath made quick work of snapping up the former Worcester duo of Ollie Lawrence and Ted Hill, with Toulouse signing England back-rower Jack Willis.

Former London Irish flyer Henry Arundell has agreed a move to appropriately named Racing 92, whilst the former Exile trio of Chandler Cunningham-South, Lovejoy Chawatama and Will Joseph have all moved to ex-rivals Harlequins. However, there still are a lot of top quality players yet to decide their futures.

Here is every Premiership club’s best free agent, that has been let go onto the transfer market.
