"It is a shame I have to leave as i have come to love my team mates but right now my career has to take priority. I will of course be coming back when I can to watch the Wasps play." Likupe said.

Coach Fawcett also commented on Likupes departure. "I have grown up with Mike and been on his team almost every year we have known each other. I know this decision was not made lightliy and I along with the rest of the Wasps family wish him the best of luck."

Likupe will be turning out for the reserve teams who play their fixtures in Doncaster.

Good luck to Mike.
