Transfer speculation was rife on the Rugby Pod this week as Jim Hamilton, Darren Cave and Andy Goode discussed all the hottest transfer rumours in the World of Rugby.
With Bath agreeing to a new long term deal with the Rhys Priestland, it appears Burns may not be getting as much game time as he would like at the Somerset-based club.

With Lima Sopaga out of the Wasps team for the foreseeable future with illness, there is a potential opening in the 10 position at the Coventry club.
Burns previously played for Leicester Tigers before he switched clubs with Bath in a deal which he has said left him with some negative feelings towards the Midlands club due to the nature of his exit.
Rugby Pod hostAndy Goode was highly complimentary of the 29-year-old.
“People talk about Freddie saying that his game management isn’t there, absolute b*****ks. Because he’s got the razzmatazz, because he can create something out of nothing, he gets pigeon-holed into that sort of bracket of just being a flash player. He’s not, he’s got the whole game management down to a tee. He’s not getting enough love at Bath, he generally plays when they’re rotating the squad as we’ve seen in the Champions Cup.”
With Sopoaga potentially leaving Wasps at the end of the season, there is a possibility for Freddie to have more starts there instead of at Bath.
