Wasps complete double signing while one leaves

Wasps today confirm the signing of props Paul Doran-Jones and David Langley, while loosehead Tom Bristow is confirmed as leaving the club.

Doran-Jones is able to play on both sides of the scrum and, having spent a short period of time on loan at the club last season, will join on a full-time basis ahead of the new campaign.

With six England caps to his name and a wealth of experience both domestically and in Europe, the 32-year-old will add his considerable know-how to the group of props already at the club.

On his signing with Wasps, Doran-Jones said: “After spending some time at the club on loan this year, I’m really looking forward to linking back up with them ahead of the new season.

“In the time I spent there, I was really impressed with the set-up and have watched with interest as they made it to the Aviva Premiership Final.”


“I’m looking forward to battling it out with them as well as working under Dai Young. I’m really looking forward to getting started.”

Tighthead propLangley will join the club from Cambridge ahead of the 2017/18 season.

The 23-year-old has impressed for Wasps during this season’s Aviva A League campaign, which saw them reach the semi-finals of the competition, and his performances for the second team have seen him sign a full-time contract with the club ahead of next season.

Meanwhile, Wasps have also confirmed that Tom Bristow will leave the club at the end of the season.

On his leaving at the end of the season, Tom Bristow said: “I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time in black and gold and I’d like to thank everyone at the club for helping me develop as a player and for making it such a good environment to work in. T

“There are a great group of guys at the club and to be involved with a team that has battled it out to reach the knockout stages of the European Champions Cup and the Aviva Premiership Final has been a brilliant experience.”
