The 2015 Premiership Transfer XV Doesn’t Quite Measure Up To The Top 14’s

transfer xv

It may not be quite as star studded as the Top 14 Transfer XV, but the Premierships biggest signings still make an impressive side in 2015…

15.Sean Maitland

The Scotland back three player will provide some serious fire-power to he London Irish backline next season.

14.Frank Halai

Halai may only have been capped once by the All Blacks, but he is still a highly rated talent in New Zealand.

13.Michele Campagnaro

The Italian centre lit up the 2014 Six Nations and should be an excellent addition to an exciting Exeter backline.

12.Jamie Roberts

Roberts time in Paris may not have been a total success, but his hard running will be a huge boost for Quins.

11.Tim Visser

The Scotland winger is a big unit and has an uncanny knack for scoring tries which should help Quins next season.

10.Rhys Priestland

Despite having fallen out of favour a bit with Wales, Priestland is still a top class 10 on his day and will push Ford.

9.Nikola Matawalu

The Fijian scrum half is capable of incredible moments of magic and could make or break Bath’s season.

8.Taulupe Faletau

Although not official yet, it appears Faletau is set to join Bath next season, and will be a huge addition to their team.

7.George Smith

The former Wallaby may be getting on a bit, but he is still one of the best openside’s to have ever graced the game.

6.Michael Paterson

Injury has derailed Paterson over the last 12 months, but he is a hugely astute signing for Saints given his performances.

5.Jeremy Thrush

Thrush has proved a huge coup for Gloucester as they sign a top class lock in their bid to break into the top six.

4.James Horwill

Horwill may have gone a little cold this year, but he is a former Wallabies captain, and a huge signing for Harlequins.

3.Adam Jones

The former Wales tighthead may not be the player he once was, but he will still be a great addition to a struggling Quins pack.

2.Tom Lindsay

Although still relatively unheard of, Lindsay looks like a great addition for Gloucester as back up to Hibbard.

1.Kieran Brookes

Although he has been signed as a tighthead, Brookes is more than capable of playing either side of the scrum.

Replacements;

16.Neil Briggs

17.Paul Doran-Jones

18.James Johnston

19.Geoff Parling

20.Dom Barrow

21.Peter Stringer

22.Jimmy Gopperth
