5 Rugby Stars that will be available for Free this Summer

by Saba Gulmagarashvili

Now that we’ve reached February 2022, any rugby players whose contracts expire at the conclusion of the season are free to speak with other clubs about signing in the summer.

In the summer of 2022, some of the finest players in the world will be out of contract.

Here we present to you the 5 biggest players who have an option to leave for free this season, let’s take a look

Nicolas Sanchez

In September 2020, Argentina international signed a new contract with Stade Français. The fly-new half’s deal will keep him in Paris until the end of the season.


Anthony Watson

Anthony Watson, who has spent the last eight years at the club, has “made up his mind” that he will quit, according to The Telegraph. Taulupe Faletau has already gone for Cardiff.

The British and Irish Lions’ ACL injury suffered against Saracens in October could be a stumbling block; the ailment could keep him out until the summer, delaying any move.

Since his debut in 2006, the 36-year-old has played 161 Tests for Wales and another nine for the British and Irish Lions, making him the most-capped player in international rugby.
