Tom Palmer agrees to rejoin Wasps


Aviva Premiership strugglers Wasps have announced that England lock Tom Palmer is to rejoin them on a two-year contract.

Palmer, who was in England's World Cup squad last year and is a member of their current RBS 6 Nations starting XV, will move back to Adams Park next season.

And he will return to the club alongside England back-row forward James Haskell, who has been playing in Japan and will have a season of Super 15 rugby before rejoining Wasps.
