Wasps have announced that Martin Gleeson will be joining the Club as Assistant Attack Coach ahead of the 2019/20 season.
The former Rugby League star will be making the switch from Salford Red Devils where he has been operating as the Super League side’s Assistant Coach in charge of their attack since 2014.

He will bring additional expertise and depth to Dai Young’s coaching group, which already includes Blackett, Defence Coach Ian Costello and Forwards Coach Andy Titterrell.
Gleeson will arrive with plenty of experience having impressed in his coaching role at Salford since he retired from playing Rugby League in 2014.
Prior to taking on that role, the 39-year-old enjoyed a notable career as a player, receiving international recognition for both Great Britain and England as a centre. Gleeson represented a number of prestigious Super League teams during his career including Wigan Warriors, Huddersfield Giants, St Helens, Warrington Wolves, Hull F.C. and Salford - winning the Super League in 2002, 2010 and the Challenge Cup in 2004.
