Wasps’ longest serving current player joined the club’s academy direct from school in 2006 and has since racked up well in excess of 200 senior appearances during which he has scored nearly 50 tries.

A pacy scrum half with a sharp eye for a gap, reliable kicking game and good service, Simpson has spent the last decade as one of the foremost No.9’s in the English game.

After emerging into the senior squad in 2008/9, two years later the Ealing product was named as both supporters and players’ player-of-the-season following his outstanding contribution to the club’s successful relegation battle.

In coming seasons, Simpson was a regular feature in try-of-the-month shortlists thanks to a number of memorable long-range efforts.

Having played for England at U19, U20, sevens and Saxons levels, Simpson was capped by Martin Johnson in the 2011 World Cup, and in 2016 missed out on an appearance in Rio’s Olympic sevens due to an elbow injury sustained in training.
