Wasps eye moves for Thomp­son and So­cino

The Rugby Paper - - Feature -

LE­ICES­TER have their eye on a cou­ple of Pre­mier­ship ri­vals as they look to im­prove their squad for next sea­son.

Wasps No.8 Guy Thomp­son, who has played over 80 games for the Coven­try­based out­fit, looks set to be head­ing to Welford Road.

Thomp­son joined Wasps four years ago from Jersey, who he helped win pro­mo­tion to the Cham­pi­onship, and where he was lead­ing try-scorer for two sea­sons run­ning after a stint with Rich­mond.

Thomp­son, who started his ca­reer in the Glouces­ter academy, is yet to agree a deal to stay with Wasps, open­ing the door for the Tigers.

Le­ices­ter are also look­ing at New­cas­tle Fal­cons’ Ar­gen­tinian hooker San­ti­ago So­cino, with Tigers No.2 Harry Thacker on the verge of leav­ing to join Bris­tol.

So­cino, the brother of Fal­cons cen­tre Juan Pablo, moved to the North East in 2015 after help­ing Hull Io­ni­ans win the Na­tional League 2 North crown.
