Willie to become a Wasp

Wasps have confirmed that Willie le Roux will join the club during the 2016-17 season after completing his commitments with the Canon Eagles in Japan.

The Springbok fullback spent just one season at the Sharks after joining them from the Cheetahs, and will now make the move to Wasps from next season.

'I'm really excited about the move to Wasps and I'm really looking forward to playing in the Premiership,' Le Roux said. 'The Super Rugby competition is a great one to play in, but I've reached a point in my career where I want to experience new environments and I can't wait for the new challenge where I'll be playing with and against some familiar faces.'
