Zach Kibirige: Helped Newcastle to victory

Wasps have signed winger Zach Kibirige from Newcastle.

The 24-year-old, the club's 11th signing ahead of the new campaign, has represented England at under-17, U18, U20 and Sevens level and scored nine tries in 12 appearances last season.

"We didn't expect a player of Zach's calibre to become available at this stage of the season and it was simply too good of an opportunity to miss," director of rugby Dai Young told wasps.co.uk.

"Since the departure of Christian Wade, we've been looking to inject some raw pace into the side and with the signings of Zach and Paolo Odogwu, alongside Callum Sirker graduating into the first-team set-up, we have three exciting, young English-qualified players with a huge amount of potential."
