The New Zealand-born back has been one of Wasps’ most reliable performers since arriving at the Ricoh Arena in 2015.

As befits one of the world’s leading goal-kickers, Gopperth has amassed close on 800 points during his first three seasons in black-and-gold.

This time at Wasps has allowed the experienced former Blue, Hurricane and junior All Black to demonstrate play-making, defensive and running skills while wearing the inside centre and full back shirts as well as his usual fly half jersey.

Gopperth enjoyed spells with Newcastle and Leinster prior to signing for Wasps, and as a consequence is in a very elite club of players who have experienced Super Rugby, the Pro 14 and the English Premiership.

After writing his name into Wasps folklore with a European Cup quarter-final-winning touchline conversion against Exeter in 2016, Gopperth’s phenomenal 2016/17 campaign saw him named as Premiership, RPA and Wasps player-of-the-season. In addition he lifted the Golden Boot for a third time having previously twice finished as the Premiership’s top marksman during his time with the Falcons.
