Wasps can confirm that Cameron Anderson, Michael Le Bourgeois, James Gaskell, Rob Miller, Pieter Scholtz, Jeff Toomaga-Allen and Marcus Watson will be leaving the Club at the end of the current season.

Cameron Anderson | Cameron has made 6 appearances in Black & Gold following his debut in January 2018 against London Irish in the Anglo-Welch Cup.

Michael Le Bourgeois | Making an impressive 71 appearance for Wasps, Michael Le Bourgeois has been a key member of the squad since his debut during the 2018/19 season.

James Gaskell | A stalwart of the Club, Gaskell joined Wasps ahead of our 2014/15 campaign. Having already made an incredible 153 appearances in Black & Gold, James has provided us with countless memories during his time at the Club.

Rob Miller | Rob Miller made his debut for Wasps against Saracens in the 2014/15 season. Miller has made 134 appearances and scored 223 points for the Club during his time with Wasps.

Pieter Scholtz | A new signing ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, Scholtz has made 9 appearances for the Club across the Gallagher Premiership, European and Premiership Cup. During his time in Black & Gold Scholtz has been a key member of the squad.

Jeff Toomaga-Allen |Fan favourite, Jeff, made his Wasps debut in September 2019 against Northampton Saints in the Premiership Cup. Injury has limited his time on the field this season but, nevertheless, Toomaga-Allen has proven to be a hugely popular character both on and off the field.

Marcus Watson | Watson has represented Wasps 68 times during his time with us and contributed a huge 100 points to the scoresheet. Marcus has been invaluable to the squad both on and off the pitch.

Wasps Men’s Head Coach, Lee Blackett, said: “Everyone at Wasps would like to thank Cameron, Michael, James, Rob, Pieter, Jeff & Marcus, along with their families, all the very best for the future.

“All seven players have shown immense dedication during their spells with us, and their contribution, both on and off the pitch, has been significant.

“James and Rob have been a constant during my time at the Club and, like all the players leaving us, I’ll miss seeing them around the training ground.

“We still have two big games left to play, and no doubt they will all continue to bring a lot to the squad for the remainder of the season.”

Wasps would like to thank all those players who are leaving the Club at the end of the season for their hard work and passion in the Black and Gold shirt;

Along with Malakai Fekitoa, Vaea Fifita, Jimmy Gopperth and Thomas Young, we wish them all the best for the next steps in their careers.
