Samoan hooker Trevor Leota has parted company with London Wasps and is reportedly set to take up a contract with a South African Super 14 franchise, believed to be the new Central Unions amalgamation of the Free State and Griquas.

The Sharks, Stormers, Bulls and Cats have confirmed that Leota will not be playing for them in 2006. This leaves only the newly formed Cheetahs as the final option.

The 30-year-old Auckland-born forward, who plays his international rugby with Samoa, leaves Wasps after eight years of service.


“It hurts me to say goodbye as I have loved every moment I have been with the London Wasps,’ he said.


‘However, I have always wanted to play in the Super 12 and now with it becoming the Super 14 I have an opportunity to play in it and also see my children more frequently which is very important to me.


‘I’ve got plenty of years left in the game so who knows, I could be back in England one day soon.


‘Wherever I go, whatever I do, the Wasps fans have a special place in my heart. ‘Once a Wasp, always a Wasp.’
