Andy Goode: Prolific kicking caught eye of Wasps boss Dai Young
Wasps have confirmed the signing of Worcester fly-half Andy Goode.
The former England No 10 will leave Sixways for Wycombe at the end of the season, when Wasps will lose current fly-halves Nicky Robinson and Stephen Jones.
And director of rugby Dai Young reckons his side can only benefit from the kicking prowess which has helped Goode score more Premiership points than anyone bar Charlie Hodgson.
"Andy's record in the game speaks for itself. Tactically he is an excellent No 10 and I am confident he will also get our backline moving very well."
Young said: "The Aviva Premiership is an incredibly tight league and there are more one score games in this league than any other, so it is vitally important to have a recognised goal kicker in your squad.
"Andy's record in the game speaks for itself. Tactically he is an excellent No 10 and I am confident he will also get our backline moving very well.
"We have a lot of young players at this club who are still finding their feet at the top level and Andy will be an important experienced head in our squad."
Goode said: "With the quality players Wasps have and the exciting backs currently in the squad I am confident I will be able to contribute to the further success of London Wasps.
"At the same time, I'm committed to doing my best for Worcester Warriors until the end of the season. I have enjoyed my time here and have a huge amount of respect for Cecil Duckworth and the board of management.
"The fans have always been fantastic towards me and that's one of the main memories I'll take with me on leaving Worcester."
