Wasps sign Wales lock Davies

Aviva Premiership club Wasps have announced the signing of Wales international lock Bradley Davies.

Davies, who has won 42 caps, will move to Wasps from Cardiff Blues at the end of this season.

He made his Wales debut in 2009 and was tour captain for last summer's two-Test series against Japan.

"We have a pool of very good locks here, and bringing someone like Bradley in will only broaden that group, offering us huge experience and quality," said Wasps rugby director and former Blues boss David Young.

"I know Bradley quite well, and he is a great guy to have in your squad.

"He is a proven leader, which has been recognised with him captaining his country, and as we continue to strengthen our side, I think he will be an excellent player for us."

Davies added: "I know Dai very well from my time at the Blues, and his vision for London Wasps is something that has been very appealing to me.

"I have been with the Blues since I was 17 years old and I have a huge amount to thank everyone there for, but I am also hugely excited about playing in a new league with a new club."

Davies is currently sidelined due to injury. He underwent shoulder surgery after being injured during Wales' autumn Test series in November.
