Wasps sign winger Short

Wasps have signed winger James Short from Saracens on loan for the rest of the season.

Short has been playing at Bedford, where he is duel registered. Wasps have signed him to provide further options to their back line having lost the likes of Christian Wade, Andrea Masi, Ben Jacobs and Hugo Southwell to injury.

"We've been very unlucky with injuries to key players in our back-line," Wasps coach Dai Young told the club's website.

"James is a very experienced Premiership player and adding him to our wing options means a few of our versatile backs could provide backup in others areas as well, so we're very pleased to bring him in for the rest of the season."
