Wasps have moved to strengthen their pack with the signing of prop John Yapp ahead of the new season.

Loosehead Yapp joins from London Irish, where he spent last season on loan from Cardiff Blues, having made 24 appearances for the Exiles. The 30-year-old, who has 21 caps for Wales, will join the squad this week ahead of pre-season training.

"I am really pleased to be joining Wasps ahead of the new season," Yapp said. "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."

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young added: "I know John very well from my time with Cardiff Blues and he will add a good level of experience to our front row.

"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."
