Bulls' Bok leaves the Kraal for Wasps
TRANSFER NEWS: Bulls confirmed that Nizaam Carr has decided to return to the Premiership.
The Bulls revealed that the Springbok loose forward Carr will depart Loftus Versfeld to return to English club Wasps.
The 30-year-old will rejoin Wasps at the end of July.
Carr joined the Bulls in June last year and has been in fine form for the Pretoria side.
He helped them lift the round-robin format Super Rugby Unlocked trophy and earned him a Springboks recall, featuring in the Greens versus Golds friendly match in October 2020.
Earlier this year he helped the Bulls to lift the Currie Cup, defeating the Sharks in the final.
Carr has established himself as an uncompromising and hard as nails No.8 but can pack down on either side of the scrum with his versatility coupled with his insatiable ability on the field making the Springbok an asset in any squad.
Carr becomes Wasps’ third South African signing of the season, following Francois Hougaard from Worcester Warriors and Pieter Scholtz from Scarlets.
Wasps Head Coach Lee Blackett said: “We have been looking to recruit a quality back-row for a while and jumped at the opportunity to bring Nemo back to Wasps.
“He was a very popular member of the squad on and off the pitch during his time at the Club previously and we all know the positive impact he can have on games. We can’t wait to see him play in Black and Gold once again.”
Carr added: “I am delighted to be coming back to Wasps. I really enjoyed my time at the Club, and I can’t wait to play with my teammates in front of the brilliant Wasps fans again.”
Cheers Nemo and thanks for everything 💪 You will be greatly missed on and off the field 🐃
