Post Goosen...problem solved?
Goosen 25 year old utility player, after being nominated Top 14 Player of the year, has been in contention with Racing, he walked out after2015/2016 and said he wanted another employment outside of rugby (horses etc)

Racing impounded his contract and claimed 1.5m euros (he was on 500k euros/Season) and covered by law.
There's been an impasse.
Now it's rumoured that someone has come along and is prepared to pay to release him.
Rumour abounds who it may be.
Racing's enemy Altrad President of Montpelier has been suggested, also mentioned that maybe the SA Fed could be involved and there's rumour that he may join Cheetahs in the Pro14.

Seems a move is likely?

Any news in SA?

no news around here
latest there was a media report on a hunting accident and in there it says Goosen is farming

...he is in legal trouble ...so maybe he is advised... the 'farming director' position ...how to wriggle himself out...won't be easy

Latest news reveals that it is suspected that billionaire Altrad the Montpelier owner is trying to release Goosen from his impasse at Racing for 1.2 to 1.4m euros.

Altrad is already causing waves throughout N Hemp Rugby and is an arch enemy of Lorenzetti the Racing President.

Whatever, it could be good news for SA because Goosen was in excellent form at the time of his dispute withg Racing : Top14 Player of the Year and an excellent Utility player ...FB, centre and 10 and a good kicker.

Altrad has been ans is involved with various high profile activities at the mo ..cue
