London Wasps have signed 20-year-old London Irish scrumhalf Jack Moates who will join them at the end of the season.

Moates has made 17 appearances this season for London Irish and joins with a growing reputation in the pivotal No.9 shirt.

London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: "I have been impressed with Jack as a young scrumhalf both for the London Irish A side and their senior side over the past year or so and I know he is a very ambitious player.

"I believe a squad needs a strong mix of scrumhalves over the course of the season and he will add to the mix alongside the likes of Joe Simpson and Charlie Davies," he added.

Moates said: "It's a really exciting time to be joining London Wasps as they are flying high in the league and pushing for Heineken Cup qualification. There are already some high quality scrumhalves at Wasps but I am looking forward to developing further under the likes of Dai Young and Shane Howarth so that I can challenge for a place in the first team."
