Davies secures Wasps deal

Wales international lock Bradley Davies will ply his trade for London Wasps next season.

Davies has been a regular in the Wales pack since making his debut in 2009 and he makes the move to the Aviva Premiership from Cardiff Blues.

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young believes Davies is a key addition to his squad for the 2014-15 season, bringing vast experience as well as leadership skills.

Young said: "We have a pool of very good locks here and bringing someone like Bradley in will only broaden that group, offering us huge experience and quality.

"I know Bradley quite well and he is a great guy to have in your squad. He is a proven leader which has been recognised with him captaining his country, and, as we continue to strengthen our side, I think he will be an excellent player for us."

Davies, 27, is looking forward to a new challenge, having been with the Blues since he was a teenager

He added: "I know Dai very well from my time at the Blues and his vision for London Wasps is something that has been very appealing to me.

"I have been with the Blues since I was seventeen years old and I have a huge amount to thank everyone there for, but I am also hugely excited about playing in a new league with a new club."
