Wasps finished top of their pool in the —04 Heineken Cup , where they went on to defeat Gloucester at the quarter-finals and won a final berth after beating Munster 37—32 in the semi-finals. They met Toulouse in the final at Twickenham , where they became champions, defeating the French side 27—20, winning their first Heineken Cup.

Wasps followed up the win the following week, again at Twickenham, by beating Bath to retain the title of England's champion side, and complete a double. In December the RFU revealed that the team was to be disqualified from the Powergen Cup for fielding an ineligible player, hooker Jonny Barrett, in a sixth-round game versus Bristol. Edwards, however, was not a totally happy man as Wasps conceded their first try of the three Premiership finals in the dying minutes.

In the Six Nations Championship , England vs. In the Heineken Cup of , Wasps qualified by topping their group for a home quarter final. They were drawn against Leinster on 31 March.

The —09 season was to see Wasps come unstuck.

With their captain having retired, many of the players failed to play to their full potential. On 12 May it was announced in the evening standard that Ian McGeechan had been forced to step down and will now take a consultancy role both at London Wasps and London Scottish.

McGeechan had technically been a Lions employee for the whole season and through agreement with Wasps was loaned back to the club. In late February it was announced that Danny Cipriani would be leaving for the Melbourne Rebels in Australia and he was determined to leave on a high. After beating Gloucester 42—26 in the Quarter final of the Amlin Cup scoring five tries including a hat-trick from winger Tom Varndell , Wasps lost 15—18 at home to Cardiff Blues in the Semi final with Dave Walder kicking all of Wasps points with five penalties.

Wasps' first home was in Finchley Road , North London although subsequent years saw grounds being rented in various parts of London. In the club moved to a permanent home at Sudbury , Middlesex , eventually buying the ground outright. The ground at Sudbury was developed for housing, though the club house still stands — currently being used as a Hindu Community Centre. Wasps made another move in , playing their home games at Wycombe Wanderers ' ground, Adams Park , in High Wycombe , Buckinghamshire. The attendance figure went up by In this drew a crowd of 51,, breaking the record set in The favoured site for the new stadium was at Wycombe Air Park , a acre 0.

The development would also have included retail, hotel, conference and other facilities.

Predominantly a blindside flanker, Shields steps into James Haskell's shoes and is a first-choice starter, especially with Jack Willis succumbing to his horrific knee injury. Shields is likely to become the signing the rest of the Premiership wished they would've made.

    His attributes seem tailor-made for the competition. A try-scorer against Wasps back in February, Matthews heads in the opposite director to Matt Symons, who left Wasps for Harlequins this summer. The year-old has plenty of top-flight experience with Quins having made 92 Premiership appearances in a senior career that started in Matthews arrives with plenty of competition ahead of him to find a place in the second-row with Joe Launchbury, James Gaskell, Will Rowlands and Kearnan Myall already on the pay roll while Marcus Garratt will add to that list once he's recovered from knee surgery. I'm sure Matthews' ambitions will not be to simply provide back-up for the first-choice pairing of Launchbury and Gaskell, but to try and secure a regular place in the matchday The more I read about and watch of this guy, the more I think he is going to be a perfect fit for Wasps.

    Bedford Blues benefited from his brilliance last season as he won the IPA Championship player of the season award as they earned a third-place finish. With centres Brendan Macken and Kyle Eastmond leaving Wasps, the former Jersey player will offer an attacking option in the midfield but also has experience of operating fullback, fly-half and on the wing. Le Bourgeois' rangy running style looks tailor-made for Wasps and is likely to become a key squad member for Dai Young with that ability to cover more than one base. The winger may not have caught the eye of a Super Rugby franchise, but he's going to get his chance the elite level of English rugby.

    With Maori All Blacks, New Zealand U20 and Sevens experience, he is by no means a rookie but has yet to burst onto the scene in his homeland. Wasps needed reinforcements on the wing with Christian Wade in particular, being forced into overtime last season with the likes of Josh Bassett and Marcus Watson suffering from injury issues. And there's always Wasps resident Kiwi Jimmy Gopperth already in situ to welcome another fellow countryman to the Wasps back line.

    Any team would miss Danny Cipriani given how influential the fly-half has been - but the same could be said of Sopoaga as he prepares to wave goodbye to Super Rugby franchise the Hurricanes. There will perhaps be less of a need for a defensive rock at 12 Gopperth with Sopoaga's arrival, with the Kiwi a strong presence with and without the ball, which could change the dynamic of Wasps' combinations.

    Wasps rugby union team: latest news, fixtures and results

    Free from the clutches of international rugby, Wasps are signing a fly-half who has one priority and that is to shine for his club. How easily he settles into the Premiership having played his whole career in the southern hemisphere is one question mark against his name, however, it's a marginal risk. If you can achieve 18 New Zealand caps in an era that's included Dan Carter and Beauden Barratt, it's safe to say you can probably play a bit of 'footy'.

    Being Ian Madigan's understudy at Bristol Bears wasn't enough for the ambitious fly-half - as he turned down a contract to stay at the newly-promoted club. Reading into Searle's career, it paints the picture of a focused young man after helping Cornwall win the County Championship at Twickenham in after cutting his teeth in senior rugby at Launceston and Plymouth Albion. He may be behind Sopoaga and Jimmy Gopperth in the fly-half pecking order, but rugby is played out on the field and he's done plenty more of that on English soil, conditions and pressures than the former of those two Kiwis.

    The openside reached the appearance mark, bagged Players Player of the Year and Coaches Player of the Year and secured a dream move to Wasps. Well respected for his athleticism and determination, Atkinson has every chance of playing Premiership minutes early doors with Thomas Young recovering from an ankle issue.

    Also from London Scottish, Dai Young has seen something in the year-old 6ft 5in inside centre that could bolster his Wasps side.
