CONFIRMED: Wasps forward signs new contract

Wasps are delighted to announce that Tom Cruse has joined Ashley Johnson in signing a contract extension with the club.

Since arriving from London Irish ahead of the 2016/17 season, the 28-year-old hooker has become a key part of the Wasps squad, already featuring in seven out of the club’s 11 games so far this season.

With 11 appearances last year, in his first season with the club, Cruse has quickly made himself a dependable fixture in the squad, with his dynamism around the park and reliability at the set piece.

Cruse previously represented Stockport, Sale Sharks, Macclesfield, Rotherham Titans and London Irish, before linking back up with his former Rotherham Head Coach, now Wasps’ Backs Coach, Lee Blackett, in black and gold last season.


Speaking about the contract extension, Wasps’ Director of Rugby Dai Young said, “Tom arrived here with a lot of promise. We were impressed with what he’d done at Rotherham Titans and London Irish and we felt he could kick on.

“Every opportunity he’s played for us, he’s done himself justice. He’s fitted into the attacking style we want to play really well, he’s very mobile, has great hands and a great game-awareness.”
