Billy Searle leaves Wasps

Date: 10 Jun 2020

Exeter-born fly-half Billy Searle joined Wasps in 2018, after two seasons with Bristol. Before moving to Ashton Gate, he’d appeared for Launceston, Plymouth Albion and Cornwall.

He made his Wasps debut in the opening day win at Worcester, contributing three penalties and a conversion in a 21-20 victory. 

He made 13 appearances in the 2018/19 season, before his campaign was cruelly ended in the visit to Ashton Gate, in February 2019. He was playing superbly against his old club when he suffered a horrific leg break which put him out of action for nearly eight months.

He made his comeback in October’s Premiership Cup defeat at Sale and his most recent appearance was in the Gallagher Premiership match away at Leicester, in February.

He made 21 appearances in Black and Gold, kicking 98 points.

 

"Billy has been massively popular with all staff and players at Wasps. Billy was in outstanding form last season before he picked up a horrific injury. A lot of credit has to go to him for coming back the way he did this season. We wish Billy all the best at Worcester, I know he will be a big success and we look forward to seeing him back at the Ricoh."
