Transfer News: Gloucester star to join Premiership rival

Ben Vellacott is set to leave Gloucester to join Wasps at the end of the season, according to Gloucestershire Live.

The scrum-half’s future has been up in the air for a few months with reports that the Coventry-based outfit were interested it’s understood that he has agreed to make the switch.


There will be a sense of deja vu for Cherry and Whites fans, who saw another young scrum-half Dan Robson prised away from them four years ago by Wasps.

At that time Robson left to get more regular rugby as he was being kept out of the Gloucester side by then captain Greig Laidlaw and Vellacott has found himself in a similar situation with club captain Willi Heinz ahead of him.
