Wasps Land Another Kiwi

Wasps Land Another Kiwi

Former New Zealand prop Jeff Toomaga-Allen has become the second Kiwi in two days to agree a deal to join Wasps.

The 28-year-old will team up with the Coventry-based outfit from next season when he will join from Super Rugby side Hurricanes.

Toomaga-Allen, whose solitary All Blacks cap came against Japan in 2013, will join fellow countryman Malakai Fekitoa at the club from the summer after his move from Toulon was announced on Wednesday.

“To bring someone of Jeff’s calibre to the club is fantastic news,” Wasps director of rugby Dai Young said. “Jeff is a solid scrummager while also being strong in defence, and like most New Zealanders, he is gifted with ball in hand so he’s a terrific all-round player.

“We’re looking forward to him joining us next season as he’ll provide a real wealth of experience to the front row.”

Wasps have also announced prop Will Stuart is to leave at the end of the season.
