Josh Bassett (born 17 March 1992) is an English rugby union player who currently plays for Wasps.

Club career[edit]

Bassett played youth team rugby for Ampthill RUFC, where he helped the under-17s win the National Bowl with a try in the final—the team lost only one game all season.

He played for Bedford Blues in the RFU Championship. After being promoted from the academy in 2010, Bassett soon became a regular starter. He was linked with a host of Premiership teams after becoming a prolific try scorer for the Blues.

On 3 April 2013, it was announced that Bassett had signed for Wasps for the 2013/14 season. He would join fellow England U20s such as Tommy Bell, Nathan Morris and Alec Hepburn with whom he played at the 2012 junior World Cup.

International career[edit]

Josh has made multiple appearances for the England Under 20s side, including a trip to South Africa for the 2012 IRB Junior World Rugby Championship.
