TRANSFER NEWS: Rob Miller is the latest player to put pen to paper on a new deal with Premiership side the Wasps.

Miller joins Ashley Johnson, Tom Cruse and Alex Rieder in signing new contracts with the club.

Since Miller joined Wasps from Sale Sharks at the beginning of the 2014/15 season, he has proved himself a valuable member of the squad, making 115 appearances to date and showing his versatility by playing at flyhalf, in the centres and on the wing, as well as his customary position of fullback.

Miller was the Premiership's top try scorer in the 2011-12 season with Sale Sharks and previously impressed for Newcastle Falcons and Tynedale RFC.

The 28-year-old has represented England at Under-16, U18, U20 and Saxons levels.

Speaking about the contract extension, Wasps’ Director of Rugby Dai Young said, "I’m really pleased that Rob has committed to Wasps and signed a new deal. He is a talented player, who can beat people with good footwork and has strong distribution skills. Rob’s been a real asset for this squad since he arrived and I have no doubt there is plenty more to come from him as well.

"Rob has become a key component of this group and is a well-liked member of the squad. He has shown valuable versatility and really stepped-up to the plate every time we’ve needed him to.

"He is extremely professional in the way he approaches the game and is one of those players who can always be found doing extras to keep improving his game and to make sure he’s ready if called on for kicking duties. We’re really pleased to have him on board going forward,"

Rob Miller added: "I'm really happy to have re-signed at Wasps. We’ve got a really great group of lads here and I’m enjoying my rugby.

"As a squad, we are working hard to take ourselves to the next level and this group is something I want to be a part of going forward. This group has been building for a number of seasons and I believe there are some exciting times ahead for us as a team and I'm looking forward to being a part of it,"

Wasps are next in action against London Irish at the Madejski Stadium this Sunday, in Round 9 of the Premiership.
