“Over £1m of stars leaving” – Wasps confirm 11 departures as financial woes continue

Wasps’ preparations for the new Gallagher Premiership season have been thrown into chaos after the club failed to make a repayment of a £35million retail bond.

It’s also been reported today that Coventry City are considering legal action against Wasps after being forced to postpone a second home match this season over an “unsafe and unplayable” Coventry Building Society Arena pitch.

The club confirmed that 11 players would leave the Ricoh Arena at the end of last season with over £1m of talent walking out of the door..

The club said in a statement: “Wasps would like to thank all those players who are leaving the Club at the end of the season for their hard work and passion in the Black and Gold shirt.”

Check out their full list of departures below.

#1. Thomas Young (Cardiff)

#2. Marcus Watson (Benetton)

Watson has represented Wasps 68 times during his time with us and contributed a huge 100 points to the scoresheet. Marcus has been invaluable to the squad both on and off the pitch.
