Premiership side Wasps have signed Georgia second-row Lasha Jaiani.

The 22-year-old lock made his international debut in February 2020 and has six caps after featuring in last year’s Autumn Nations Cup.

After representing Georgia Under-20s at the 2017 and 2018 Junior World Championships, Jaiani spent time playing for the University of Exeter.

“Playing for Wasps will enable me to make a step up in my professional career,” he said.external-link
