- The 33-year-old Haskell joins Northampton on a one-year-deal
- Gloucester confirm Cipriani will move to Kingsholm this summer
James Haskell and Danny Cipriani have kept their hopes of appearing at next year’s World Cup alive by signing deals with Northampton and Gloucester, respectively, as they prepare to leave Wasps at the end of the season.
The 33-year-old Haskell was told in January he would be released by Wasps at the end of the season – ending a 12-year career at the club – but after he revealed he was willing to take a pay cut to stay in the Premiership, Saints have announced his signature on a one-year-deal.
