French Reports Linking An Irish Scrumhalf To Join Dan Carter At Racing Should Put IRFU On Alert

French Reports Linking An Irish Scrumhalf To Join Dan Carter At Racing Should Put IRFU On Alert

It's transfer silly season at the moment, and with the likes of Simon Zebo, Robbie Henshaw, and Conor Murray out of contract at the end of the season - there are fresh worries that they might join the growing legion of Irish players playing their rugby abroad.

One such player is Grenoble's James Hart. The talented scrum-half has been a fantastic player for Bernard Jackman's side, with his goalkicking helping the Alpine side to some famous victories. So when Midi Olympique is reporting that he could be on the move to join some illustrious names we should take notice.

Imagine, a Hart-Carter 9/10 combination, under the tutelage of one Ronan O'Gara. It's a sign of how good Hart has been in the Top 14, that he would be even considered for a nouveau riche club like that.

This should be a wake-up call to the IRFU though. Both Munster and Leinster need some quality scrumhalf cover with Isaac Boss and Eoin Reddan pushing close to 36; and doubts surrounding Conor Murray. To have a quality Irish scrumhalf come into the market when his contract is up and not make an offer for him would be ludicrous.

Come on David Nucifora. Do the right thing.
