WASPS HAVE SEALED the services of South Africa full-back Willie le Roux, who will complete his Premiership switch after fulfilling his commitments with Canon Eagles.
Le Roux, who has 37 caps to his name, was previously playing Super Rugby with the Sharks before joining the Japan-based Eagles.
He was also nominated for the 2014 world player of the year award and will join a club who have already brought in Kurtley Beale, Kyle Eastmond and Danny Cipriani.
“I’m really excited about the move to Wasps and I’m really looking forward to playing in the Aviva Premiership,” the 26-year-old told the club’s official website.
“The recent World Cup in England really hit home just how passionate the fans there are about rugby and in weighing up the move, the recent successes Wasps have experienced, the way they play the game and the facilities they have at the Ricoh Arena were big factors in my decision.”
Wasps finished third last season and have not won the Premiership title since 2008.
