Andy Goode will don the colours of London Irish next season after Wasps announced the fly-half will leave the club at the end of the current campaign.

The Coventry-born number 10 is the Premiership’s second highest points scorer having accumulated 2,147 points during spells at Leicester, Saracens and Worcester in addition to two seasons at Wasps.

Dai Young offered the 34-year-old a chance to stay at the club in a coaching capacity but he decided to extend his playing career with Irish.

He said: “I love playing the game and I'm excited to be joining London Irish, which is another club with fantastic opportunities ahead, following a similar re-building process to Wasps.

“I have really enjoyed being a part of that process and I know how much it has energised the players at Wasps, seeing the facilities they now have and the potential to improve as a squad.

“It has been a lot of fun being involved during the move to Coventry and the Ricoh Arena and I can only see the Club continuing their upward curve.

“There is so much still to play for in Europe and in the Aviva Premiership and I will be putting everything I have into helping Wasps achieve our goals this season.”

Goode has been in sparkling form this season and set a Premiership record for most points by a single player in Wasps first game at the Ricoh Arena against London Irish when he notched 33 points.

The fly-half has 17 England caps to his name and will leave the club with the best wishes of director of rugby Young.

“We would have loved for Andy to stay at Wasps in a coaching capacity next season, but we fully understand his decision to play on at London Irish, during an exciting time for that club as well,” said Young.

“Goodey has been a tremendous ambassador for Wasps since joining two seasons ago, both on and off the field. His performance against London Irish at our first game at the Ricoh Arena will live long in the memory.

“He is a popular character, who has really helped some of our young guys coming through and they will continue to benefit from his knowledge this season.

“Goodey’s a great competitor and I have no doubt he will put everything into our remaining games this season and will be determined to sign off for Wasps in style.”
