London Wasps Paul Sampson has been released with immediate.
Sampson joined Wasps in 1996 and quickly became a crowd favourite as one of the fastest players in the game.
Capped three times for England, Sampson went off for a spell playing rugby league with the Wakefield Trinity
Wildcats before coming back south in August 2000 and finishing as the club's top try-scorer.
An injury during the Dubai leg of the IRB World Sevens Series last season meant he missed the latter part of Wasps triumphant 2002/03 season. In November last year, Sampson was loaned out to Bath for three weeks.
His last game for Wasps was during a Zurich A League game against London Irish in December, in which he scored 18 points with the boot.
