South African star returns to the Ricoh Arena

June 10 2018

Wasps are delighted to announce that Nizaam Carr will rejoin the club on a permanent basis prior to the 2018/19 campaign.

The 27-year-old South African international No.8 spent three months at the Ricoh Arena earlier this season providing injury cover.

During that spell he put together a string of impressive performances in the Aviva Premiership and European Champions Cup, scoring four tries in 11 outings.

Since departing Coventry following the January home win over Ulster, the five-times-capped Springbok has returned to Super Rugby with the Cape Town-based Stormers for whom he has now appeared 96 times since making his debut in 2012.

He has also been a fixture in Western Province’s Currie Cup line-up for the last seven years.

Director of rugby Dai Young said:

“Nizaam made a massive impact during the time he was with us in the autumn.

“As a powerful ball-carrier with plenty of pace he proved to be a really good fit with our playing style.

“His close-quarter work also really stood out in a couple of games played in bad weather.

“He also immediately became very popular with the rest of the players and the fans while the staff and coaches found him excellent to work with.

“We are therefore really delighted that he is rejoining us on a permanent basis and look forward to seeing him become part of a very strong back-row group.”

Nizaam Carr said:

“After my brief stint at Wasps I really felt at home which is why I am so excited and motivated to be returning full-time to this incredible club.

“The fans, management and players made me feel really welcome and I am so looking forward to this next chapter in my rugby career.”
