Wasps have signed Marcus Watson and Ben Harris from Newcastle Falcons
The pair will join up with Dai Young’s men ahead of the 2017/18 campaign

Wasps have confirmed the signings of winger Marcus Watson and prop Ben Harris, who will arrive at the club from Newcastle Falcons ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.
In addition to the GB Sevens flyer and loose-head prop, Wasps will also be joined by Solihull-born hooker Antonio ‘TJ’ Harris, who is currently playing his rugby in the Championship with Nottingham Rugby.
Known for his explosive power, Harris will add to Wasps’ talented pool of hookers next season, which includes Tommy Taylor, Ashley Johnson and Tom Cruse.
Speaking about the recruits for the new campaign, Wasps’ Director of Rugby, Dai Young said: “We’re pleased to bolster our front row options for next season, with the addition of Ben Harris and TJ Harris.
“Marcus Watson will be another exciting addition to our backline. Everyone has seen how Wasps like to play rugby.
We always want an exciting back three, with pace on the wing, as we feel we have great distributors in our inside backs so we want to make sure we have deadly finishers to execute the chances they create.”
25-year-old Watson, helped Great Britain Sevens win a silver medal at the Rio Olympics and has also represented England in the World Rugby U20s Championship.
Ben Harris will also return to Wasps next season, having impressed during his short-term loan stint with the club.
The England Counties prop previously represented Yorkshire Carnegie and Rotherham Titans before joining Falcons.
