With his injury record and amount of time he spends with England, I'm not sure he would be worth the investment. Of the players that have been stood down by Tigers and rumoured to leave, the only 2 I would have wanted would be Genge and Taufua, although where Taufua would fit I have no idea. I wouldn't have wanted Ford as fly half is such a key position, I dont think you can justify paying 700k for a player that plays for the club in 50-60% of eligible matches in the season (assuming they stayed injury free.)

It does start to raise the question in whether it is worth having players who play for England and if you do, how many you would have. The value for money doesn't seem to be there for me. Before COVID, Genge, Ford and Tuilagi accounted for 25% of Tigers Salary Cap (apart from marquee players). Does not seem conducive to building a well-balanced squad.
