Leeds Carnegie lock Marco Wentzel has signed for London Wasps after the Yorkshire club were relegated last weekend.
The 32 year old second rower from South Africa first came to England to play with Leicester Tigers for two years before joining Carnegie but after two years and subsequent relegation, Wentzel feels it is the best decision.
“It was a hard decision for me to leave Leeds, but I believe it is the best decision for me and the future of the club. I really enjoyed my time there and made some great friends. I must thank all my team-mates and the fans for their amazing support the past two years.”
The South African international added.
“On the other hand, I am really looking forward to join a club with a proud history like Wasps and believe I can play a part to get them back where they belong at the top of English and European rugby.”
