Rob Howley has been capped 59 times for Wales, 22 of them as captain. He made his international debut in 1996 against England. Blessed with remarkable pace and excellent tactical-kicking skills Howley brings a wealth of experience to the club. The Welsh legend that scored a memorable 60m solo try for the British Lions in 2001 against Australia, was also been chosen in the Welsh Sevens squad for the Commonwealth Games in Manchester.
At his signing, London Wasps Chairman Chris Wright said, "Rob Howley, is probably the best scrum half in the Northern Hemisphere. He has extremely fast hands, a great pass, and on his day is a real match winner.
London Wasps Director of Rugby Warren Gatland added "we as a club are delighted to have Rob with us. His experience and leadership will be a boost to the team and I'm sure everyone will look forward to watching a player of his calibre perform in the Zurich Premiership."
Rob's season has seen him start in awesome form with the Welsh Wizard setting up a number of tries. Any opposition side knows that when the Welshman is in the number nine shirt, they will need to be on maximum alert around the base of the scrum.
A true class act.
