CONFIRMED | Hooker rejoins Wasps on short-term deal

TJ Harris has joined Wasps on a short-term deal after a move for Ashley Johnson fell through.

The move comes after a number of players were ruled out with injury after the recent win against Bath.

The Coventry born forward, who spent two years with Wasps between 2017 and 2019, will join the Club in advance of this Saturday’s match against Saracens at Allianz Park.

Lee Blackett, Wasps Head Coach, said: “Following Monday’s game, we needed to bring in cover for the hooker position.

“TJ has proven quality and, as he already knows the club, will fit in straight away.”


JOIN THE RUCK:


England’s best uncapped XV Eddie Jones should be watching

Fullback: Josh Hodge (Exeter Chiefs) – The 20-year-old started for Exeter for the first time since his move from Newcastle in June against Bristol last week. It’s fair to say he made quite the impression.

Winger: Ollie Thorley (Gloucester) – He made his debut for the Cherry & Whites in 2013 as a 17-year-old, partnering World Cup winner Mike Tindall in the centre of an LV= Cup match, and has since gone on to prove himself as one of the brightest talents at Kingsholm. A World Rugby U20 Championship winner in 2016, Thorley has pace, power and an eye for the try line.

Centre: Cameron Redpath (Bath RFC) – The son of 60-cap Scotland legend Bryan Redpath, centre Cameron was born in Narbonne, France. He was selected in England’s 34-man squad for their 2018 tour of South Africa but was unable to travel with the squad because of injury. The 20-year-old, who recently departed Sale Sharks for Bath Rugby, has also represented England U20, scoring three tries in nine appearances.

Centre: Ollie Lawrence (Worcester Warriors) – The 20-year-old continues a low-slung surge towards Test recognition. His slicing angles are troubling Premiership midfields, a kicking game is developing and he even dotted down at the tail of a driving maul in the comprehensive win over Harlequins.

Winger: Ratu Naulago (Bristol Bears) – The speedster took Super League by storm with Hull RFC, scoring 17 tries in 26 games, before signing with Bristol Bears for the 2020/21 Gallagher Premiership season. It will be a switch back to union for Naulago, who previously won the Premiership 7s title with Saracens. If he can hit the ground running, he’d be right in the frame for a call-up from Eddie Jones.
