Rumor - Wallaby lock Rob Simmons

Rumours circulating that Exeter are interested in Queensland Reds & Wallaby lock Rob Simmons. He has apparently chosen not to renew his current contract. 28yrs old 6ft 7 Aussie school boys, U19, U20 and 60 caps for the wallabies.

If this is true and we do sign him he could prove a very good replacement for Geoff. Who I wish had stayed. Fingers crossed!

I posted something about this the other day.

I posted it purely because its a high calibre lock who is going to be coming onto the market shortly. Which Exeter need.. For the record I have no idea this story is actually true or not, Not looking to start rumors here.......

Furthermore, He hasn't chosen not to renew. He has been told by the Reds his contract isnt being renewed as they have opted to go with a younger pairing.

For what it's worth, the rumour is mentioned in the Telegraph...

...though he could end up at the Waratahs to replace Dean

I'd never rule out where these "experts and insiders" get their rumors from..... Wouldn't shock me if there was one or two vacating these forums looking for a scoop.

Once one Journo gets a scoop its soon appears in other sources. Thats the way the press cycle works
