Wasps confirm their squad for the rest of the season

Wasps Rugby have today confirmed their senior squad for the remainder of the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership campaign.

Wasps Head Coach, Lee Blackett, said: “We’ve got a really strong squad, there is competition for places and we’re looking to finish the season as strongly as possible. To do that, everyone is going to have to play their part.

“The players, coaches and medical team have worked extremely hard over the last few months to ensure we are in the best shape possible to start playing again.

“Restarting a season midway through is a new experience for all of us. However, training has gone well, our preparation has been really good, and we can’t wait to get going again.”

One Free Agent Each Gallagher Premiership Club Should Sign

Bath rugby – Brodie Retallick

The 28-year-old is back in New Zealand after his Kobe Steelers sabbatical was cut short by the COVID-enforced cancellation of the Japanese league. However, the lock has rejected an offer from Super Rugby side The Chiefs to remain a free agent. He’s reportedly having a bit of a break with his family before making his return. A line-out general like Retallick is the sort of player Bath need to go to the next level.

Bristol Bears – Logovi’i Mulipola

Pat Lam has built a phenomenal squad, making it hard to find someone who could considerably improve them. When Logovi’i Mulipola finishes his short-term deal at Gloucester, it never hurts to have a powerhouse international prop who can operate on either side of the scrum.

Exeter Chiefs – D.T.H van der Merwe

You can never have enough natural try-scorers at a club. The Canadian international, who departed Glasgow Warriors this summer, is one of the best around when it comes to crossing the whitewash and despite being 34-year-old he could still do a job off the bench for Rob Baxter’s men
