Wallaby star Smith to Wasps?

Date published: May 21 2015

Wasps are set to bring in Wallaby legend George Smith from Lyon this season after the French side were relegated from the Top 14.

The veteran back-row has enjoyed a fantastic season for the struggling side after joining on a two-year deal.

However he had a clause in his contract allowing him to leave in case of relegation, and RMC are reporting that he will join Wasps next season.

While the Premiership side already have Nathan Hughes, James Haskell, and Ashley Johnson among others in the back row, Smith’s versatility should make him an invaluable signing.

Having previously played in France, Australia and Japan, it will be Smith’s first taste of the Premiership.
