If reports are to be believed, it appears the Top 14 league has pulled off another big name coup from the southern hemisphere as versatile Springbok Pat Lambie is linked with a move to Paris and Racing 92.
According to Rugbyrama, the Sharks flyhalf has agreed a three-year contract with the Top 14 side, which will see the Lambie league his childhood club ahead of the 2018-19 season.
The 26-year-old is currently sidelined as a result of two concussion injuries suffered in the last 12 months. With no plans to return again in 2017, Racing has reportedly insisted that any transfer of Lambie is, therefore, subject to the passing of a medical assessment.
Capped almost 60 times for the Springboks, Lambie is considered to be a real talent to the game, although injury and serious concussions in recent times have seen questions arise over whether he will continue in the game.
According to Rugby365, this is a notion that the South African has moved to dispell,
“I will be playing rugby again and I certainly have no plans to retire.
“My focus, for now, is purely on making a full recovery and getting fit and strong again.”
The road to full recovery will see Lambie miss the Rugby Championship this autumn and also South Africas Currie Cup.
Hopefully, when does return in the new year, he will have firmly put his injuries woes behind him and can get back being one of the most exciting players in the game.
