Reports this morning suggest Scotland international Finn Russell’s time with French heavyweights Racing 92 will soon come to an end.
It has been widely reported across the Channel that All Blacks star Beauden Barrett will join the Parisians after the 2023 Rugby World Cup, which would surely spell the end for the 30-year-old player at Paris La Défense Arena.
He has always been linked with a big move to Japan, although RUCK sources suggest the playmaker would prefer to stay in Europe should a tempting offer arise.
Russell, who will soon become a father for the first time with his partner, the beautiful Scottish model and heptathlete Emma Canning, would probably welcome a return to the Glasgow Warriors to be closer to his family.
A strange rumor Rugby Pass has linked him with a move to Graham Rowntree’s Munster in Ireland.
DID YOU KNOW? Russell was born into a sporting family. His father played a lot of racquet sports and worked in sports administration, including as director of national rugby for the Scottish Rugby Union. His grandparents were international badminton players, his uncle and great-grandfather played cricket for Scotland, and his brothers are also well-known rugby players.
