More Waterloo departures

Macro*World Investor

RELEGATED Waterloo have confirmed that their two North American half-backs have left the club.

US Eagles international scrum-half Chad Erskine and Canadian fly-half Ander Munro will both be in action in this autumn's World Cup.

And with the duo getting the chance to show what they can do on the biggest stage, Waterloo director of rugby Colin Fisher doesn't expect to see them back at Blundellsands.

"I actually told them it would not be in their best interests to enter into a contract at Waterloo for next season," Fisher said.

"Both of them will be in the shop window at the World Cup. It's a great opportunity for them and the eyes of the world will be watching.

"They have left with our best wishes and thanks for all their efforts.

"But I've told them that after the World Cup, if they don't get the move they hoped for, then to get back in touch with me."

No 8 Rory McKay joined Bedford Blues last week and the other notable departure is winger Jan Van DeVenter, who has signed for Sedgley Park.
