Guy Thompson to leave Wasps

Date: 26 Jan 2018

Wasps confirm that Guy Thompson will leave the club when his current contract expires at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old back-rower has appeared 90 times since joining Wasps from Jersey in 2013 and has scored 24 tries.

 Guy Thompson said:

“Leaving Wasps is the hardest decision I’ve had to make.

“It’s been my home for five seasons and I can’t thank Dai and the coaching staff enough for the opportunities they have given me.

“Wasps is a special club and I have loved my time here. The fans are incredible and follow us all round Europe; they make the club what it is.

“We have a huge part of the season ahead and I will be working harder than ever to go out on a high.”

Director of rugby Dai Young said:

“We’re sorry to see Guy leave.

“I have no doubt he will remain a fully-committed member of the squad until the end of the season and continue to play his part to the full.

“When the moment is right in May we’ll say our goodbyes more fully. In the meantime, on behalf of everyone at Wasps I’d like to thank Guy for his efforts and wish him well.”
