London Wasps confirm signing of Worcester Warriors fly-half Joe Carlisle
LONDON Wasps have confirmed they have signed Worcester Warriors fly-half Joe Carlisle for next season.
Wasps director of rugby Dai Young said: “I have been impressed with Joe over the last few seasons and he’s a young English player I believe has a lot of potential. He has an excellent kicking game and he attacks the line very well and has the ability to really get a backline moving.
“He’s comfortable in the centre and at fullback as well as at ten and his aim in moving here is really to reignite his career and I believe we can help him to do that. He’ll be playing here with lots of other young English talent and I think he’ll enjoy his time at the club.”
Carlisle has made 90 appearances and scored 477 points for Worcester since coming through the club’s academy and earlier this season set a club record for the highest ever number of points in a European game.
Carlisle has been sidelined with injury for some of this season but is now back fully fit.
