Roan joins Wasps

Wasps have strengthened their front-row options ahead of the new season by signing promising Argentinian prop Guillermo Roan.

The 22-year-old tighthead, who has made 10 appearances for the Argentina Jaguars side, joins from Buenos Aires club La Plata.

He joins on a two-year deal and becomes the London side's 11th signing for next term.

Roan said: "It's very exciting to be given the opportunity to come to England and play with such a great club.

"This is a big challenge for me and I hope I can impress enough in the first half of the season to secure the longer-term deal.

"I know lots of Argentinean players who have gone to Europe at a young age and hugely improved their game and I hope the same can be the case for me. I'm looking forward to getting started."
