TRANSFER | Wasps star on the verge of shock departure

Wasps star Will Rowlands will reportedly join Dragons following the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership final, according to reports.

The 29-year-old, who has been with the black and golds since 2014, will have to move across the border in order to continue his international career with Wales.

Rowlands, who impressed on his Wales bow against France as a second half replacement, will be a huge boost to the Rodney Parade team.

He was named in Wayne Pivac’s squad for the conclusion of the Six Nations and the upcoming Autumn Nations Cup.

Wales Online report that ‘the move to bring him to Newport is all but done’, but it isn’t certain when he’ll formally become a Dragons player due to the upcoming final against Exeter Chiefs.

DID YOU KNOW? He studied at Oxford University, where he gained a BA degree in Economics and Management
