Transfer Rumours: Two English sides battling for All Black speedster

Wasps have emerged as the front runners to secure the services of New Zealand winger Waisake Naholo.

The 26-times capped All Black looks set to join Dai Young’s side upon the conclusion of the 2019 World Cup

Leading New Zealand news website, Stuff has reported that the 27-year-old could be set to join All Blacks colleagues Lima Sopoaga and Malakai Fekitoa at Wasps for the 2018/19 season. All three have also featured for Super Rugby Highlanders.


The rumour was also given airtime on The Rugby Pod, which is co-presented by former Wasps fly-half Andy Goode.

However, website RugbyPass believes that London Irish, who are in pole position to make an immediate return to the Premiership, are also in the face to sign Naholo’s services.
