Worth wanted to re­place Le Roux

The Rugby Paper - - Feature -

WASPS are plot­ting a move for Le­ices­ter Tigers full-back Ge­orge Worth to re­place Spring­bok star Wil­lie le Roux who is de­part­ing the club to take up a con­tract in Ja­pan.

Peter­bor­ough-born Worth, 22, joined the Tigers two years ago and is un­der con­tract at Welford Road un­til the end of next sea­son.

But Dai Young,

right, has Worth – who has made 30 first team ap­pear­ance and at­tended the same school as Will Evans – on his radar.

If he can’t get him this sum­mer he is pre­pared to wait for the fi­nal year of his con­tract to ex­pire be­fore mak­ing an­other move.

Wasps tar­get: Ge­orge Worth
