Dai Young weight loss: Former Wasps boss slims down ahead of return to coaching

DAI YOUNG, former Director of Rugby at Wasps, has wowed rugby fans with his massive weight loss.

The Welshman left the Gallagher Premiership side in February following nine years in charge, which included moving the club from London to Coventry.

His name has been linked with Wasps’ Premiership rivals Gloucester following the departures of both head coach Johan Ackermann and director of rugby David Humphreys in recent weeks.

In a short video posted onto CV Life Engage’s Twitter account, the former Wales captain, wearing the familiar colours of his home nation, appears significantly slimmer than when his time at Wasps came to an end.

Looking good!
