Wasps have completed the signing of talented young centre Guy Armitage from Championship side London Welsh.
The younger brother of Delon and Steffon, Guy Armitage has been making a name for himself in the Championship recently, where he has scored 12 tries in 25 appearances for London Welsh this season.
The talented centre, who stands 6ft 5 inches tall and weighs in at over 17 and a half stone, also enjoyed spells with London Welsh, London Scottish and Toulon, before returning to London Irish. In 2015, after two years back with London Irish, he moved to London Welsh where he’s made a total of 29 appearances to date.
Wasps’ Director of Rugby Dai Young said:
“Guy has been one of the stand-out performers in the Championship this season and I’ve been impressed not only by his try-scoring ability, but also his physicality in attack and defence. Watching some of Guy’s games, you can see he has a real hunger to get involved and is able to create chances as well as finish them.
“We look forward to Guy providing another strong option in our talented backline, as we look to increase strength in depth across the squad.”
Guy Armitage added: “It’s great to be joining a very talented group of players and coaching staff at Wasps. I’ll be meeting up with quite a few of my England age group squad – Elliot [Daly], Christian [Wade], Dan [Robson], Sam [Jones] and Joe [Launchbury] – so it will be nice to have some familiar faces.
“Dai Young shows great confidence in his squad and you can see the players have bought into his plan and excelled. For sure, it’s an exciting new challenge for me and I feel I am ready. I would like to thank London Welsh for the opportunity they have given me to get so much game time. I’ve really enjoyed playing with a fine group and will be wishing them all the best for next season.” [Premiership Rugby]
