Joe Simpson was born in Australia to a New Zealand mother and English father, both rugby enthusiasts.
He has been one of the most consistent performers in the Gallagher Premiership since graduating from the Wasps Academy in 2008.
The scrum-half headed into the Black and Gold’s first team striking up an electric partnership with Danny Cipriani, culminating in the duo playing 53 Wasps games together across the latter’s two spells at the club.
Featuring over 250 times for Wasps in 13 years, one-cap England international Simpson signed for Gloucester in 2019 where he scored 11 tries in 29 matches ahead of a short-term deal with Saracens in 2021/22.
He earned his Bath Rugby debut against Harlequins in October 2021 and has been an influential person for the young scrum-halves at the club.
