Dovendo fare i conti con gli infortuni scorsi ad Alex Lundberg e Simon McIntyre, gli Wasps tornano sul mercato e annunciano l’arrivo in prestito dai Newcastle Falcons del pilone sinistro Ben Harris, 27 anni, già internazionale con England Counties, in precedenza tra i migliori piloni della Championship con Rotherham Titans e Yorkshire Carnegie.

With an ankle injury keeping regular loosehead prop Simon McIntyre sidelined and young loosehead Alex Lundberg also currently out with an injured ankle, Dai Young has added some much-needed depth to his squad, with the addition of the 27-year-old prop.
The England Counties international joined Newcastle from Yorkshire Carnegie in the summer of 2015, having impressed with Carnegie and Rotherham Titans in the Championship for over five years.
On the signing, Dai Young said: “We’ve been left a little short with the injuries to Simon and Alex so we’re pleased to be able to add someone of Ben’s ability to the squad. He will add to our loosehead options and will complement the group of front row players at the club heading into a very busy period as we approach Christmas.”
