“Everyone at Wasps would like to thank Cameron, Michael, James, Rob, Pieter, Jeff and Marcus, along with their families, all the very best for the future,” said director of rugby Blackett. “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.”

Cameron Anderson: Cameron has made 6 appearances for Wasps 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 and made a remarkable 153 appearances.

Rob Miller: Rob Miller made his debut for Wasps against Saracens in the 2014/15 season and went to make 134 appearances and score 223 points for the club.

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.

Jeff Toomaga-Allen: The former All Black and fan favourite 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.
