Three English clubs tracking the availability of Brad Shields

Wasps are the latest club to join the race to sign Hurricanes back-rower Brad Shields, who has already revealed he wants to come to the Premiership.

The Rugby Paper reported on Sunday that the black and golds have identified the back-rower as a new principal target.

Shields, who is equally capable at flanker or number 8, holds a British Passport through his parents and has already opened negotiations with English clubs about a move in the next few months.

He has been attracting interest from Bristol and Northampton Saints but has a significant price tag of around £350,000 per season.


The 26-year-old, who captained the Hurricanes against the British & Irish Lions in the summer, would also qualify for England and it’s been reported he’s already spoken to Eddie Jones about a prospective call-up.

Wasps are also rumoured to be keen on bringing in Exeter-born Welsh international Aaron Jarvis from Clermont Auvergne.
