Transfer News: Wasps sign young scrum-half.


Wasps have signed young scrum-half Sam Wolstenholme from Yorkshire Carnegie.

The 20-year-old, who is studying Economics at Loughborough University, made 23 appearances for the Leeds-based outfit and will join Umaga as part of a 48-man senior squad at Wasps for the 2019/20 campaign.

Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “Sam is a talented young scrum-half who will add some depth in the nine position, and hopefully training and playing alongside some international-class players next season will aid his development. We’re looking forward to seeing how he goes.”

Wasps Academy Manager Jon Pendlebury added: “I’ve known and worked with Sam since he was just 15-years-old through the Academy at Carnegie.

“It has been pleasing to see Sam continue and progress into their first-team last year, playing as much as he did, which is credit to him and has now given Sam this opportunity with us at Wasps to develop further.”
