Next Season’s Premiership Transfer XV Is Scarily Good

France v Ireland, IRB Rugby World Cup, Rugby Union International, Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, Wales, Britain - 11 Oct 2015

We take a look at the biggest signings so far for next season’s Aviva Premiership and put together a XV of players moving clubs…

15.Kurtley Beale

Although the Wallabies star could be set to miss the majority of next season for Wasps through injury, expect him to light things up in the Premiership once he gets fully fit again.

14.Josh Charnley

The Wigan Warriors star is making the cross-code move to Sale Sharks where he will be hoping to replicate his record of more than a try per game for his new club.

13.Ben Te’o

Worcester’s new signing Ben Te’o has already impressed Eddie Jones so much that he has received an England call-up before he’s even landed at his new club

12.Matt Toomua

Another Wallabies star heading to the Premiership. Given Leicester’s new found flair in the backs, expect Toomua to really star for the Tigers next season.

11.JP Pietersen

Another new Leicester season, Pietersen will be expected to come in and ensure the departing Vereniki Goneva and his tried aren’t missed too much at Welford Road.

10.Danny Cipriani

Cipriani is heading home next season and will be hoping he can translate his Sale Sharks form into performances on the biggest stages at the Ricoh Arena for Wasps.

9.Mike Phillips

A Lions tourist who has played at the top level in both the Pro12 and Top14. Although he is now 33, we’re sure Phillips will still have plenty to give for Sale Sharks.

8.Louis Picamoles

Picamoles has reversed the trend of top stars moving to the Top14 and is instead leaving Toulouse to head to the Premiership with Northampton Saints.

7.Schalk Burger

Saracens are replacing one Burger with another as Schalk comes in for the departing Jacques where they will be counting on his experience to help develop some of the younger players.

6.Taulupe Faletau

As if Bath didn’t already have enough back row options, however in Faletau they have one of the stars of European rugby who they will be hoping can turn the clubs fortunes around.

5.Luke Charteris

Bath have also drafted in Faletau’s Wales colleague Luke Charteris in the hope that the giant lock can help shore up their disappointing set piece.

4.Juandre Kruger

Sale Sharks Director of Rugby has shown a keen eye for picking up bargains in the second row, and in Kruger it looks like they have another key player coming in.

3.Marty Moore

It was a huge show of intent from Wasps to claim the signature of Moore given that he is just 25 and already has ten Ireland caps to his name.

2.Tommy Taylor

Although he has some stiff competition ahead of him, Wasps new signing Tommy Taylor looks like he could be an England star in the making with his dynamic style of play.

1.Greg Holmes

The Wallabies prop can cover both sides of the scrum and will come into an Exeter side already on the up where he will hope his experience can help them continue to develop.
