Wasps sign Biyi Alo

Wasps have signed giant tighthead prop Biyi Alo from Coventry Rugby.


 

 

The 135kg prop initially joined Wasps as injury cover earlier this year but has impressed during his short time to earn a permanent deal with the Club.

 

 

Alo, 24, came through the Saracens Academy and featured for the first-team during the 2015 campaign, before making the switch to Worcester Warriors where he made 30 appearances, scoring four tries.

 

 

Last weekend, he made a powerful impact off the bench for his Wasps debut at Leicester Tigers.

 

 

Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “Biyi still has lots of potential and we are confident we can develop him into a top-end Premiership player as we’ve seen with other players in recent years.

 

“He is a big lad who will certainly give us some go-forward.

 

 

“With Kieran Brookes, Jeff Toomaga-Allen, Jack Owlett and Mike Daniels already in the squad for next season, we’ve got some real power and depth in the tighthead position and I’m excited about working with all of them.”
