The build up to the new season of the Aviva Premiership is getting hotter each day with all the teams trying to make most of the transfer window in the very beginning of their campaign. This is no different for the last year semi-finalists London Wasps. The most significant signing for the club has been undoubtedly the Worcester Warriors star Ed Shervington. The veteran for the warriors put up a good performance in spite of his side’s elimination form the main draw and was thereby duly rewarded in the transfer season. The club has also renewed the contract with fellow hooker Tom Lindsay who has made his presence felt in about hundred matches for the Wasps, impressing the coaching staff and fans alike.
The Director of the club Dai Young has also been instrumental for signing his own son Thomas Young for his side. The 21 year old flanker had previously been involved with Gloucester making three appearances for his side. Buster Lawrence and Will Rolans were the other 22 year old young guns who were added to the ranks of the team. Although these players might have to wait for their chances in the big stage yet the club has pinned its hope on their agility and aggressive approach to the game. The only player to be released recently from the club was their fly half Joe Carlisle. He would be facing competition for his number 10 jerseys from Andy Goode, Ruaridh Jackson and Alex Lozowski who have joined the club recently. Wales International prop John Yapp was also signed by the Wasps from Edinburgh. Dai Young clearly mentioned that they were banking on the former Cardiff Blue star due to his massive experience in the Premiership. The team now seems to be complete and competent enough for a major title in the upcoming season.
