Versatile England Saxon signs new deal at Wasps
NEWS: Wasps revealed that versatile back Rob Miller has signed a new deal, becoming the tenth first-team player to commit to the club in recent months.
The all-round clubman has put pen to paper on his fourth Wasps contract, as he prepares to become a club centurion in the coming weeks, having amassed 98 appearances which have included 19 tries.
The 29-year-old, who usually stars at fullback, has featured 16 times this season and has recently proved an able deputy at flyhalf in the absence of Lima Sopoaga, Jimmy Gopperth and Billy Searle.
The England Saxon has also shown his prowess from the kicking tee, having kicked 100 percent of his nine shots at goal in recent weeks.
In his earlier days, Miller began his professional career in the Newcastle Falcons Academy while also having represented his country at Under-16, U18 and U20 levels.
He then made the switch to Sale Sharks where he enjoyed four highly successful seasons, finishing as the Premiership’s top tryscorer in 2011/12 and making more than 100 senior appearances before switching to Wasps in 2014.
Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “Rob is a player you can always count on to play a role in the team, wherever it might be, and he has been fantastic stepping in at flyhalf recently.
“The culture is something that is very important here at Wasps and Rob is a fantastic character around the place. He’s liked by everyone, always has a smile on his face and his work ethic and professionalism are second to none.
“We’re delighted he’s re-signed and having yet another one of our more experienced players committing to the Club shows what we’ve been able to build here in terms of some consistency and continuity.”
Miller added: “Wasps has become a home away from home for me and I’ve met some amazing people in the last five seasons.
“I always love pulling on the Black and Gold and like everyone else signing new deals with the club, I want to help us push on and compete at the top with the very best.”
