Wasps hooker Shervington to retire

Wasps hooker Edd Shervington will retire at the end of the season, the club has announced.

The 31-year-old has made 31 appearances for Wasps during his two seasons at the club.

A keen singer with a passion for musicals and theatre, Shervington is keen to investigate a post rugby career in the West End.

I’m sure a few people will think my West End ambitions are a wind-up.

Wasps’ Director of Rugby Dai Young added:

I’d like to wish Edd and his family the best of luck for their next steps. Edd has been a great addition to the squad, not only for his strength at the set piece but also for his off-field presence.
