Marcus Smith Could Be About To Leave Harlequins In A Shock Move
Teenage sensation Marcus Smith could be about to leave Harlequins in a shock move, according to rugby transfer specialist Neil Fissler.
The nineteen year-old recently signed a long-term deal with Quins, worth a reported £230,000-a-season that runs until 2022. But Fissler is reporting that he had a break clause in his contract.
Marcus Smith could exercise a clause that allows him to leave Harlequins following their change of coach. Believe that Bath and Sale are interested.

The outhalf is apparently allowed to speak to other clubs if there is a change in coach at the Stoop, and with Paul Gustard set to take over in the coming weeks, Watson may look to make his exit.
Fissler says Bath and Sale sharks are interested, should Smith exercise his clause.
