Wasps to be sent to Coventry?

Wasps have dropped London from their name for the forthcoming season, and are now believed to be drawing up plans to relocate the club away from Wycombe to the West Midlands, specifically Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.Wasps are no stranger to the ground, having played a number of Heineken Cup games there in the past.

Land Rover have their headquarters in the area, and the new club sponsors are Land Rover owners Tata Motors Limited

Wasps would not be the only rugby team to have shifted location to find a permanent home in recent years, but there is no denying that those clubs who are leading such a nomadic existence are the one who find it harder to create the home atmosphere found in the West of England or Leicester.

One can appreciate Wasps’ need to move and find a more suitable home, but surely it should be closed to their traditional home and not further away?
