James Haskell: Wasps choose not to renew former captains contract

This week Wasps announced that they would not be renewing James Haskell’s contract when it expires at the end of this season. Haskell who has made over 200 appearances for Wasps over 2 spells and has won the Heineken Cup and the Premiership title including a spell as captain.

The 32 year old started off at Wasps through their academy as a teenager and has been an integral part of their more recent success also. Haskell who has also made 75 appearances for England and has appeared for the British and Irish Lions also, has been linked with Northampton Saints and also Bristol but it has not yet been announced where and who he will be playing his rugby for next season.

Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young when speaking about Haskell’s departure spoke of his loyalty and his character and wishing him well when he moves on at the end of the season;

“I have no doubt whatsoever, given his character and loyalty to this club, that he will remain fully committed until the end of the current campaign.

“On behalf of everyone at Wasps I’d like to thank James for his efforts and wish him well for the future.”

Haskell has spoke of his sadness of leaving Wasps but is looking forward to the next stage of his career.

It will be extremely tough for Wasps to replace a player of James character and skill however with the recent signing of Brad Shields from Super Rugby side the Hurricanes and with the emergence from young Jack Willis who has been sensational when selected, Wasps will not be short options.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
