I would imagine that many of their players will want to remain in that part of the world, or take the easier, more lucrative route of a season playing in Japan. Not sure many will be on Prem radars.

Ben McCalman or Peter Grant might be useful if we need some injury cover.

Agree with drifter

. Read something somewhere over the weekend by some Aussie player who's just arrived in U.K. quoted as saying that RU in Oz is in disarray, many decent players looking at Europe as somewhere where the game is taken seriously.

Quite a few article about the collapse of RU in OZ at all levels including support, TV coverage and sponsors.

As a national sport I think Union is 4th or 5th for following in Aus, so no surprise there. In the past I have read the NZ game financially, barely stacks up. Maybe it's the franchise system as Pro 14 seems to suffer financially too and would be even worse if half of them didn't get the Euro gravy train to bail them out.

Aus players coming to Europe are only looking for the pay day, not week in week out intensity. Maybe they'll follow the Saffer.

Not great if you're a youngster planning on breaking through though. Knock on the Elite development etc etc.
