Having been jettisoned by the financially-challenged Stade Français, it has been announced that James Haskell will be re-joining Wasps - but not until the 2012/13 season.
After the World Cup this autumn the Brand is set to ply his trade for Ricoh Black Rams in Japan and then play a season of Super Duper rugby for some team or other downunder before returning to Wasps for the following season.
Haskell claims that, by exposing himself to different coaching, cultures and playing styles, he will gain a greater understanding of the world game.
However, in the words of Jessie J, it's not about the money. Not at all.
