Wasps have completed the signing of Alapati Leiua from the Hurricanes.

Leiua will join Wasps after the current season of Super Rugby where he is shining at both centre and on the wing. Wasps boss Dai Young welcomed the signing, saying: We have been really impressed with what we have seen of Alapati and he will add power and pace to our backline options.

"We have identified the type of players we need to add to the side and he fits the bill very well. He is powerful, has good feet and knows where the try line is, and I am sure he will make a big impact here."

Leiua added: "After considering a number of options the decision to join London Wasps was made easy after meeting with Dai Young and hearing his vision for the future of the club. I am very excited to be playing in the Aviva Premiership next season and look forward to contributing to the success of London Wasps."
