Briefly a Wasp, always a Wasp?
BdeB 08 January, 2016 11:33
I am sure we have done this before but in light of J Johnstone Wasp's career consisting of 8mins and a yellow card, which other reasonably big names have had a brief career as a wasp.
In the brief but significant category must come Steve Thompson, if I remember it was only 50mins against Worc but it was a game he helped us dominate at the scrum to win some vital penalties on the way to what by seasons end proved to be a very valuable win.
Less significant was Fillipo though he at least played some full games. Hobson and Pitman also spring to mind.

Didn't a Welshman play in the centre (Hall) ?? 1 game

We lost I think.

Wasn't familiar with this match against a World XV. Found a match programme on eBay and luckily the seller has included a photo of the teams. You were correct with Hall then. http://www.rugbyrelics.com/images/aaaaa/gt/35.jpg

Link to the eBay listing for anyone interested

Piri Weepu springs to mind from recent times. He made it off the bench once didn't he?

Marty Veale played a lot for us, and Heinz Koll turned out a fair bit too.

It was a shame Gresev never got much of a run for us as he was rated highly after the 2011 World Cup.

Ed O'Donohughe played a lot for us, and was last seen playing for the Reds in Super Rugby.

But there have been very few big names that haven't made an impact - and mostly that was due to injury rather than anything else (i.e. Thompson, Filipo, Hobson).

Thanks COYW15..

Looking at that team I can't believe that Aaron James was still with us.

Mike Griffiths ex-Lion hardly set us alight..

Anyone else remember the NFL lad who scored a hatrick in his first game then never played again? Must have been 2005?

Re: Briefly a Wasp, always a Wasp?
Bellowhead 11 April, 2020 10:46
Was the NFL lad Neil Baxter?

I nominate Alex Rae, whose name I saw on the sub's bench in the 2004 HEC final. I don't remember him at all!

Does Josh Lewsey’s second stint at the club count? Albeit his first stint resulted in ‘legend’ status.

Alex Rae didn't join until 2013. Are you thinking of Henry Nwume?
