Wasps sign Tagicakibau

Planet Rugby
Sunday, August 17, 2014

Wasps have announced the signing of Samoan international winger Sailosi Tagicakibau from London Irish.

The "Samoan flyer" lit up the Aviva Premiership on numerous occasions during his nine seasons playing for the Exiles, with his blistering pace and power producing an impressive try scoring record.

Tagicakibau, who has 21 caps for Samoa and has also represented the Pacific Islands, has most recently been playing for South African Super Rugby side the Stormers while on loan from Irish.

"Sailosi has proved himself at the highest level, representing Samoa in three Rugby World Cups, and has been viewed as one of the most destructive wingers in the Aviva Premiership," said Wasps' director of rugby Dai Young.

"As we still have a few niggling injuries in our backline, which have been carried over from last season, when Sailosi became available I felt it was an opportunity we should take.

"I am pleased with the depth and quality we are building in our Wasps squad. Sailosi's experience will really benefit the team and his power and pace will provide another attacking threat in our backline, on top of his solid defensive game."

London Irish Director of Rugby Brian Smith said: "Losi has been a great competitor for London Irish over the last nine years. We would like to thank him for all of his efforts and wish him and his family all the best for the future.

"We are entering a new chapter at London Irish and have assembled a squad of players that can take the Club forward and achieve the long term goals set out by our new owners."
