#teamredsky’s Nick De Luca signs for WASPS!

1 July 2016

Red Sky are delighted to confirm that Nick De Luca has signed for Aviva Premiership side Wasps. 

Wasps have moved to bolster their midfield options by adding the talented and experienced centre to their 2016/17 squad.

De Luca made his international debut as Scotland’s outside centre in the 2008 RBS Six Nations, against France at Murrayfield, and went on to feature in 43 games for his country up until his last test appearance against South Africa in Port Elizabeth in 2014.

Having made his name with Edinburgh Rugby, where he played over 125 matches, De Luca moved to Biarritz in 2014 and made over twenty appearances during his two seasons in the Basque Country.

Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “Whilst we have initially signed Nick on a short-term deal as injury cover, we are not ruling out a longer-term agreement. I have only seen and heard good things about Nick in terms of his attitude, ability and application. He has already proven himself as a top professional and an international rugby player and I am looking forward to working with him when he joins up for pre-season.”

Nick De Luca added: “I can't wait to become part of the Wasps family. I followed the team’s success last year and I'm excited by their ambition and their style of play. I'm looking forward to adding to an already world class group of players, staff and fans!”                                 

Red Sky Athlete director Jason White commented: “ Wasps are a great fit for Nick, his experience and attacking skill set will add to one of the most dangerous back lines in European rugby”
