Joins Lyon for next season.
Verdict from Wasps fans? I caught a few games over the past few seasons and showed flashes of skill but never seemed to influence a game - also wasn't sure if he was seen as 10, 15 or pine rider. Quite a disappointment given the reputation and promise, all quite underwhelming. The anti Jimmy Gopperth?
Very disappointing and costly, not sorry to see him go. Frees up a nice chunk of wedge for a couple of better prospects/accrue it for Barbeary's next contract.
I've wondered what it is that makes some imports really stand out and others flatter to deceive
We had Beaver down at Bath, we never really got a decent run out of him in the admittedly limited time he was there. Not his fault he was brought in around silly rumour of Dan Carter and he struggled with a hip injury, he got a fair bit of stick although you could see he was a talented player.
I thought Butch James was going to a be a car crash, the utterly abject place kicking and agricultural tackling technique aside he was first rate, and his partnership with Claassens really got us playing quality attacking rugby.
Wondering if it's something about where the team are at a point in time - imports joining teams on the way up rather than teams on the way down. Not sure.
