Wallabies' Latham set for UK: report

17/12/2007 11:36:31 PM Comments (0)

Wallabies fullback Chris Latham is set to quit Australia and link-up with English club Worcester.

News Limited newspapers reported that Latham would play out the 2008 Super 14 season with the Queensland Reds before earning up to $2 million in a three-year deal with the cashed-up club.

It was unclear whether he'd be released from his Australian Rugby Union contract for the 2008 domestic and Tri Nations Tests but the newspaper speculated he would likely at least be freed to miss the end of season tour to Europe.

Despite being 32, Latham would be a major loss for the Wallabies and new coach Robbie Deans.

One of the most consistent Australian players of the last four years, Latham has played 78 Tests.
