Warriors rumoured to sign current England player??

Rumour time!! Listened to the The Rugby Pod, Podcast this morning and Jim Hamilton says that we are in the process of signing a Current England player for mega bucks. That's all he would say, even when pressed by Andy Goode he stayed at that and no more. Any thoughts on who it could be, which England players are on the end of their club contracts???
I know we get a hit in the make believe land of the Neil Fissler's Blindside in the Rugby Paper each week, but Jim Hamilton sounded genuine and not the usual wind up stuff they do on their pod.

More importantly what current England player do we really need?

We really need a 10 and Ford/ Farrell are already committed.

I'm sure I heard something last season about mike brown.

Isn't Brown rumoured to be considering retirement?

Perhaps a returner...Tom Wood, Dylan, Mullan?

I heard a rumour that no current regular (match day squad) England player is coming to Worcester. You heard it from me first. As positive as the last few months have been, why would they.

If I'm wrong would expect it to be flanker, eight or full back.

Wonder how much game time Alex Lozowski will get at Saracens, only international cover for Farrell. Is that enough for him to fulfil his ambitions

It's not a player, it's Dean Ryan in as DoR #fakenews

I think Alex Lozowski would cost a fair bit to buy out of his contract. Only signed for Sarries the end of last season.

Lozowski will not be leaving sarries to come play for us.

Also not part of the England set up.

I just cannot see a logical fit in terms of contracts and why....of all the names suggested I'd say a returner seems the most sensible.

Logically I would say any England regular from a team with a slightly underwhelming league position all things considered, so Bath, Saints, Gloucester.......Johnny May?

Mike Brown seems a horrendous fit...are there any other Quins? Robshaw?

It all just seems a long shot really.

For such a rumour - relegation avoided and timing would be right; need to strengthen the squad in certain areas; credibility of Worcester for players looking to move much improved of late

Against - need to reduce playing budget; no obvious player in areas needed.

I do like a good rumour to enliven a dull day - but I will wait patiently to see what occurs.

With the two touring squads announcements out of the way - and Premiership retained for next season - I would expect to see a drip feed of news of signings / departures to start soon but I would guess that quite a few negotiations are taking place at the moment and that these will take a while to finalise. News of any "star" joining will be timed with ST news.

Isn't Tom Wood supposed to be out of contract? There were some comments earlier in the season where he seemed to be distinctly unhappy about Saints' performances and seemingly hinted at things going wrong behind the scenes.

I wondered at the time whether he might be interested in coming back to us.



Whatever you do, do it safely!

Let's just imagine for a second that the rumour is true:

Bregvadze and Matty Williams will be off/not used by first XV = could Hartley return?

Our depth at Prop has never been good, will Mullan consider a return? Playing for wasps hasn't excelled his England career that much

Vui could be off, and Potgieter is out of contract, Tom wood to return? Teimana Harrison?

Henry Slade in as our 10?

I'd say Tom Wood makes sense, more than anyone else

I'm going for Ellis Genge. Still hasn't renewed for Tigers and would be an unbelievable replacement for Val. We currently have 4 signed tightheads for next year being

Schonert
Alo
Milasinovich
Kerrod

And only three looseheads

Waller
Grant
Bowzer
?....Genge (praying)

If we're talking seriously big money, then I would happily make Farrell the highest paid player in the league if he came to us.

That's not just unlikely though, it's basically impossible. If there's any truth in the rumour, it won't be any of the sarries lot.
