Sounds like you are leading the chase for him.

...several English clubs are interested in signing the All Black centre but Harlequins lead the chase for Saili who is out of contract at the end of the season. Harlequins are keen to find a replacement for Welsh international Jamie Roberts as he is likely to leave the Premiership side next month.

Would be an incredible signing. He's the nuts.

He may be under contract, but it wouldn't be the first time someone's said they're hanging around to subsequently leave.

Roberts has only pulled his finger out when the question of his staying next season came up. Either he needs to convince us to keep him or convince his next club to buy him.

We need centres regardless of whether Roberts stays or not. I'd be very happy with Saili. He'd suit us well and, at 26, his best years could be to come.

I hate to say it, but may have more to do with Lowe/Sloan's availability than Roberts',if it happens...

Roberts seemingly confirming on twitter he'll be playing his rugby at the stoop next season....

Saw the Twitter post on the wrap up on BT1 - hopefully he can finish off with Quins in style.

Yes as said before not sure where this he is leaving in a month has come from as he has stated several times now he expects to be at Quins next season.
I do wonder if we may have to face a hard truth about Lowe and realise he is never going to be a regular player also not sure about Sloan with his injury

How good is Francis as Munster had their 12 and 13 in the pro team of the year and he was neither

I believe he has only recently come back from a serious long-term injury so has only been playing in the latter half of the season

This. He was injured for a while and Taute and Scannell were playing too well to justify being dropped. When he has played he's looked good. He scored a great try vs. Ulster a few weeks back.

He's good enough to have been capped by the ABs so that's good enough for me. I hope it comes off. It's a strange feeling to be excited about a possible signing!

More on Saili joining us this morning in TRP by Fissler and that Jamie Roberts is reviewing his options and likely to be returning to Wales. Also Mark Reddish maybe returning to Oz.
Quotes sources from the Stoop we clearly have a leak!

Guessing his concussion must be bad. The article states he is thinking about calling it a day
