Joining Wasps: John Yapp

Wasps have announced the arrival of Wales international prop John Yapp ahead of the 2014/15 Aviva Premiership season.

Loosehead prop Yapp will link up with the squad this week at the start of pre-season training.

With 21 caps for Wales to his name, Yapp will add significant experience to the Wasps front row joining from London Irish, where he spent last season on loan, making 24 appearances for the Exiles.

"I know John very well from my time with Cardiff Blues and he will add a good level of experience to our front row," said Director of Rugby Dai Young.

"We now have a good group of props to choose from, who range in experience. We have always sought competition for places and John's arrival will only make that more intense."

John Yapp added, "I am really pleased to be joining Wasps ahead of the new season. I really enjoyed my time in the Aviva Premiership last season and I am looking forward to making a real impact in black and gold this year."
