Wasps bring in newly capped Argentina prop as injury cover
He will arrive from Súper Liga Americana de Rugby as cover for Ben Harris, who is out with a long-term neck injury. Harris is just one of an extensive injury list at the Coventry Building Society Arena this season.
Wasps head coach Lee Blackett said: “We are thrilled to add Rodrigo to our squad. He will provide vital cover for us in the front row, while we have some injuries in that area.
“Rodrigo is an exciting young prop, who has impressed for Argentina recently. He will bring a lot to our scrum. Scrum Coach Neil Fowkes and the whole coaching group are looking forward to working with him.
“I would like to say a big thank you to Olímpia, I really enjoyed my time playing for them and I wish the Club all the best for the future.
“I can’t wait to get started with all my new teammates and hopefully I can have a positive impact.”
Wasps take on Worcester Warriors in the Gallagher Premiership this weekend before Heineken Champions Cup fixtures against Munster and reigning champions Toulouse at the Stade Ernes-Wallon the week after, so Blackett will be all too aware that a tough December awaits.
