Wasps say Gleeson will “concentrate on supporting Attack and Backs coach Lee Blackett whilst also supporting the wider team to help achieve the rugby department’s goals.” The former Great Britain and England rugby league international insists he is relishing the new challenge.
Gleeson told Wasps’ official website: “I’m thrilled to be making the move to Rugby Union and to be joining a team of Wasps’ calibre. “I’ve had a fantastic time with Salford, but I feel now is the right time for a new challenge. “Premiership Rugby is one of the most competitive leagues in Rugby Union so this is certainly a challenge I’m relishing, and I can’t wait to meet the team.”
