前黃蜂隊隊長Joe Launchbury將在即將到來的日本甲級聯賽賽季中加入豐田Verblitz。

據報道,他將在明年夏天加入哈勒奎斯,但已經與豐田達成了從12月到5月的短期協議。

Launchbury在日本參加了2019年的世界盃,他說。"能有機會為豐田這樣的偉大俱樂部簽約,我感到非常興奮。"

他補充說:"我和我的家人都期待着再次體驗日本,我個人也期待着在聯賽中檢驗自己,並幫助豐田Verblitz擁有一個好年景。"

2012年至2020年期間,Launchbury為英格蘭隊贏得了70個帽子,打進了5個球。

在10月9日黃蜂隊40-36擊敗北安普頓的比賽中,他為黃蜂隊打了最後一場比賽,這是在行政管理被確認之前的9天。

俱樂部的管理人已經接受了一個包括黃蜂傳奇集團成員在內的財團的收購提議。

該交易有待橄欖球聯盟的批准,但如果該交易得到確認,黃蜂將在下個賽季參加二級錦標賽,因為他們也因進入行政管理而被降級。

Former Wasps captain Joe Launchbury is to join Toyota Verblitz for the forthcoming Japan League One season.

He is reportedly set to join Harlequins next summer but has agreed a short term deal with Toyota from December to May.

Launchbury played in Japan at the 2019 World Cup and said: "To have the chance to sign for a great club like Toyota is something I am very excited about."

He added: "My family and I are looking forward to experiencing Japan again and I am personally looking forward to testing myself in the league and helping Toyota Verblitz have a good year."

Launchbury won 70 caps for England between 2012 and 2020, scoring five tries.

He played his final game for Wasps in their 40-36 defeat by Northampton on 9 October, nine days before administration was confirmed.

The club's administrators have accepted an offer to buy from a consortium including members of the Wasps Legends group.

The deal is subject to approval by the Rugby Football Union but Wasps will play in the second-tier Championship next season if it is confirmed, having also been relegated as a consequence of going into administration.
