Wales international set to end international career by staying in the Premiership

Wales back-rower Thomas Young is set to turn his back on international rugby and sign a new deal with Wasps, according to reports.

The flanker made his international debut against Tonga in 2017 before also appearing against Samoa on his country’s summer tour.

“I fully expect Thomas to be here next year,” Blackett told The Rugby Paper.

“He spoke to me personally about how much he loved the club and how much he loves the players and the group.

“It amazed me actually and I’m hoping we’ll get something across the line in the near future.

Young  joined Wasps in 2014 from Gloucester Rugby having come through the academy system at Cardiff Blues for whom he also made his senior debut.
