Wasps have handed out a new contract to Levi Douglas, with the young second row doing enough to impress despite making just one appearance for the Gallagher Premiership side since signing a short-term contract.

The 25-year-old joined Wasps on a short-term deal back in August for the remainder of the 2019/20 season. Douglas has now put pen to paper on a deal to secure his longer-term future at Wasps, the club have confirmed.

The 6’5, 121kg second-row has made one appearance for Wasps to date, in the 54-7 win against Leicester Tigers in September.

The former Oyonnax forward also made 32 appearances for Bath, in a four-year stint in the west country.

Wasps Head Coach, Lee Blackett, said: “We are delighted that Levi has agreed to extend his stay at Wasps. He has shown his quality in training in the short time he has been with us and hopefully he will get more opportunities to show that quality on the pitch in the coming months.”

Levi Douglas added: “I am buzzing to have extended my time here at Wasps. It allows me to continue to be a part of the great journey this club is on. It’s also a great place for me to continue to develop as a player.”
