Gloucester Rugby – Tendai Mtawarira
The World Cup winner’s arrival in Washington DC in February caused a mini stir in the United States capital. But, barely three months later, he ws back in South Africa, the stint over and done with, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. Where will he go next? Kingsholm, we hope.
Harlequins – Kyle Eastmond
Eastmond is reportedly set to sign a short-term deal with Harlequins after departing from Leicester Tigers.
