Wasps lock Ross Filipo has returned home to New Zealand and is set to play there this season.
The 33-year-old requested to leave for New Zealand due to personal reasons. He is contracted to Wasps for a further year having signed a two-year deal with the Aviva Premiership club in April last year.
Injuries restricted him to just 15 appearances for the club during the 2011-12 season, though he did score three tries in the games he was fit to play.
