Wasps and England star Elliot Daly has taken to Instagram to share a message before his final game for his club this Saturday.

The 26-year-old is set to join Saracens ahead of next season, bringing to an end almost a decade long spell with Wasps, dating back to his debut in 2010.

Daly said that he has “loved every moment” of his time at Wasps, and is hoping to bow out with a win over Harlequins at the Ricoh Arena in the final game of the season.

This is what he wrote:

During his time with Wasps, Daly has established himself not only as one of the club’s key players, but England’s too. Capable of playing on the wing, at fullback or as a centre, Daly’s versatility has made him a favourite of Eddie Jones’.

The Australian has primarily used Daly as part of the back three for England, although many feel his best position is outside centre, where he is often deployed at Wasps. It is not just Jones that reveres him though, as Warren Gatland selected him for the British and Irish Lions in 2017, starting him in all three tests on the wing against the All Blacks, which included a monstrous penalty kick in the final test of the series.

Daly is part of a mass exodus of Wasps players at the end of the season, as they are also set to lose huge stars such as Willie le Roux, Nathan Hughes and Joe Simpson. Equally they have the likes of Malakai Fekitoa and Matteo Minozzi arriving next season to fill the void left by the England international.

It has not always been an easy ride for Daly, as Wasps have had some tough seasons and relocated whilst he has been with the club, but he has always been a high performer, and deserves a win on his final game.
