Wasps sign Ireland tighthead Marty Moore

Wasps have confirmed the signing of Ireland international tighthead, Marty Moore, from Leinster Rugby. The 24 year-old prop will join Wasps ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

Moore has won 10 caps for Ireland since making his debut on 2 February 2014, in their RBS 6 Nations Championship win against Scotland, and has been part of Ireland’s last two Six Nations title-winning squads.
 
The dynamic prop missed out on the 2015 Rugby World Cup through injury, but returned to fitness earlier this season for Leinster and has made a total of 58 appearances for the province since his debut in 2012.
 
The arrival of the Irish international will bolster Wasps’ talented pool of tightheads, with Wasps’ Director of Rugby Dai Young saying: "Marty has already proven his international pedigree with Ireland and, at only 24, he has plenty of years ahead of him to continue his development and become a top-class tighthead.
 
"We already have talented tightheads at the club, but his addition will strengthen the depth we have in this key position and will help to drive competition for places, which is what we are trying to achieve throughout the squad. We are looking forward to Marty joining us next season."
 
Marty Moore added: "I’m really pleased to have signed a contract with Wasps to join next season. I am looking forward to working with Dai Young and his coaching team as well as the squad and am excited about the challenge ahead in the Aviva Premiership. However, up until the move I am fully committed to Leinster Rugby and I would like to thank everyone here as well as the Leinster fans for the support they have shown me."
