Wasps have recruited former England and Lions' hooker Andy Titterrell to their Strength and Conditioning team for the new season.

Titterrell, who retired from playing professional rugby at London Welsh in January due to injury, joins Wasps on a three-day a week contract.

Alongside representing Sale Sharks, Gloucester Rugby, Leeds Carnegie and Edinburgh Rugby, Titterrell has amassed significant Strength and Conditioning expertise during his playing career.

Having previously run his own personal training business, he is currently studying for his Masters in Strength and Conditioning at St Mary's University, Twickenham.

As well as assisting Head of Strength and Conditioning Dan Baugh, Titterrell will use his considerable line-out capabilities to help develop the Club's hookers.

"I'm very grateful for the opportunity Dai Young and Dan Baugh have given me here at Wasps," said Titterell.

"I didn't want to be away from the game for long or drift away from an environment I love. It's a great set of boys here, many of whom I've played against during my career.

"I'm thrilled to be part of a Club that is moving forward and have been very impressed by where Dai and Dan want to take the programme.

"I'm really excited to be part of a performance team which I believe will help to improve on-pitch performances and am looking forward to the challenge ahead."
