Done deal; rugby star set for transfer

Courtney Lawes, a former England player, is in talks to make a dramatic move to a French tier-two team.


French media reports state that Courtney Lawes, a utility forward for Northampton Saints and a former England player, is the most recent Premiership player to be in talks to relocate to France.

Lawes, who declared his retirement from international rugby following the Rugby World Cup in France last year, is supposedly in talks with Provence, a PRO D2 team.

In addition to meeting with staff members of the French second division club, Rugbyrama disclosed on Sunday that the 34-year-old had inspected the facilities of Provence on Saturday.

“A one- or two-year contract as well as the Provençal project were negotiated by the two sides. For the player and those around him, the ball is now in their court, according to the article.

Lawes has previously been mentioned as a potential transfer to Toulon, one of the top 14 heavyweights. The club is eager to add Premiership players to their roster because of their much tighter finances.

After 15 matches, Provence is in third place in the PRO D2 rankings, behind leaders Vannes and Béziers. They are vying for promotion to the Top 14.

Their dreams of being promoted were dashed in the most recent round of games on Thursday at the Stade des Alpes when they were unexpectedly defeated 45–10 by Grenoble, who are currently in 12th place in the standings.

Aspiring team Provence has already signed Wales players George North and Tomas Francis.

Lawes was a standout performance for England during the World Cup, although they lost to eventual winners South Africa by a just one point. His first game for the Northampton Saints was back in 2007. He is a one-club man.

His possible transfer comes after last week’s reports linking Saracens and England fly-half and captain Owen Farrell, who is allegedly on the verge of joining the Top 14 side Racing 92, according to French media reports.
