Wasps sign Fijian international Gaby Lovobalavu

Wasps have announced that Fijian international centre Gabiriele Lovobalavu will join the club ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

Lovobalavu, who has won 22 caps for his country and represented Fiji in the last three Rugby World Cups (2007, 2011 and 2015), is currently playing for Bayonne in the Top 14, having joined them from Toulon in 2012.

Speaking about Wasps’ newest international recruit, Young said: "We are pleased to have signed another player of Gaby’s quality. He's comfortable playing 12 or 13, which will give us more options, particularly during the international period..."

Lovobalavu will head to Wasps over the summer when Samoan international centre Alapati Leiua moves to Bristol Rugby, while Scotland centre Nick De Luca has announced he will retire from professional rugby at the end of the season.
