Wasps swoop for Eastmond


Wasps have made another high-profile signing ahead of the 2016-17 season, capturing Kyle Eastmond from Bath.

Eastmond - a dual-code England international boasting six union caps - becomes the 12th close-season arrival at Wasps, following the likes of Danny Cipriani and Kurtley Beale in joining Dai Young's side.

The fleet-footed centre spent five years with Bath, having previously starred in rugby league for St Helens.

Young told Wasps' official website: "Kyle is one of the most exciting centres in the Aviva Premiership and we're really looking forward to adding his talents to an already impressive group of backs at the club.

"At Wasps we like to play expansive, attacking rugby and Kyle is a player who can add a lot to that in terms of controlling the game as well as threatening defences, keeping the crowd on the edge of their seats."

"Kyle has already shown his international class and still has plenty of potential to fulfil in rugby union and we're looking forward to seeing him continue his development in black and gold."
