The suspension of Worcester and Wasps has benefited many clubs, especially French ones. Bordeaux, La Rochelle and Montpellier respectively welcomed Renato Giammaroli, Kyle Hatherell and Curtis Langdon. About the latter, Philippe Saint-André, the manager, says: “When we contacted him, we felt he was very worried. There were two hookers in Worcester, the other was an Italian international, with a New Zealand passport, he could even come faster than Curtis… But we stayed with Curtis, even if with Brexit, we got an English player has become complex. Curtis had a good 20 minutes in Toulon, it’s an interesting profile. »
Wasps players have also traveled extensively. They are found in France, Japan (Launchbury), Italy (Minozzi, Umaga), South Africa, Ireland, the USA and Scotland. Manager Lee Blackett rebounded in Wales from the Scarlets, while attacking Matt Everard found a job at Leicester Academy.
