Wasps sign up quartet

Aviva Premiership club Wasps have announced four new signings for next season.

Centre James Downey will remain with Wasps after initially arriving from Glasgow on loan as injury cover earlier this term, while Leinster centre Brendan Macken arrives following a loan spell at Gloucester, together with Leicester prop Tom Bristow and London Scottish scrum-half Jamie Stevenson.

Wasps rugby director Dai Young said: " As everyone knows, the depth of your squad is extremely important.

"You need high-quality cover for injuries and to be able to rest players when they need it during the year, managing the squad to arrive at the business end of the season in the best shape possible.

"We have three talented young players coming in in Brendan Macken, Tom Bristow and Jamie Stevenson, who I believe will fit really well into the squad.

"I am also pleased that James Downey will be staying next season. His experience at the top level has been really beneficial since he joined, and you know he will always produce a quality performance in midfield."
