Wasps stars Alfie Barbeary and Jack Willis set to complete moves following emotional post

Bristol Bears and Leicester Tigers have been linked with England flanker Jack Willis, who has posted an emotional post on Instagram following Wasps collapse.

He wrote: “I genuinely don’t think I’ll ever get over what happened this week at Wasps and it is hard to put into words how sad I feel to see my boyhood club end in this way. 

“Firstly I’d like to thank the fans for their unwavering support during the highs and the lows. I’d also like to thank the staff and players who have genuinely become family to me. Letting go of that special group that will never be together again is truly devastating. It has been an absolute pleasure being alongside my best mates every single day whilst doing what I love. 

“Most of all, I’d like to thank Wasps for making my dream of playing alongside my brother come true. From the back garden, to the Academy, to a Premiership final – it seems quite surreal looking back and memories made that will last a lifetime. I can’t describe how much that means to me and my family and we will always be grateful for that. 

“I came to this club as a boy and now leave with a family of my own. I will treasure every experience, every memory in a Wasps shirt. This has been some journey.”

Meanwhile, powerhouse back-rower/hooker Alfie Barbeary could be playing in the Top 14 soon as Bordeaux Begles are now the favourites to sign him. 

The Telegraph has also reported that discussions have been held with three Premiership clubs.

Leicester are also in talks to sign fly-half Charlie Atkinson, according to the same report.
