London Wasps have bolstered their wing options with the arrivals of Tom Prydie and Lee Robinson until the end of the season.

The duo link up with the squad immediately, adding strength to the Club’s back-three options in the absence of Christian Wade and Tom Varndell who are both out with injuries.

Prydie, who in 2010 became the youngest ever player to be capped by Wales, joins on loan from the Ospreys. The 19-year-old comes to Wasps with a reputation that belies his youth with four full caps to his name and an appetite to grab more game-time at senior Club level.

He will not be available for selection in the upcoming LV=Cup games, having already represented the Ospreys this season in that competition.

Lee Robinson has also joined the squad from Leicester Tigers. The powerful winger started his career with Bath Academy before joining Plymouth, and then spending five years with Bristol. He totalled 45 tries in just over 100 appearances for Bristol before moving on to join Leicester and toured with the Barbarians in 2006 and ’07.

Robinson is in contention for involvement in this Saturday’s LV=Cup game against Exeter Chiefs at Adams Park.

The two new wingers bring to four the number of new players to join the injury-hit Wasps squad this week until the end of the season. Yesterday the Club announced the news that Russian duo Vladislav Korshunov and Victor Gresev were also arriving to add depth to the squad.
