Rob Hoadley

Rob joined Wasps in the summer of 2004 from London Irish. He is a strong, well-built centre who offers the Wasps backline another dimension in attack and defence.

Beginning in the Irish 'mini' set-up, Rob moved up the ranks and into the first team, playing over 30 games for the Reading-based club and also went on to represent the Irish Exiles at U21 level. He studied at St. Mary's College in Twickenham and lists music, golf and darts as his hobbies.

Rob put the icing on the cake in the 2005 Premiership Final at Twickenham, making a fantastic pick up off his bootlaces to score Wasp final try in the dying minutes.

With competition fierce for places in midfield, Rob's appearances in 2005/06 were limited to eight starts. His enthusiasm for the game and hunger to pull on a Wasps shirt are never in doubt however, making him a valuable member of the squad.

2006/07 was a difficult season for Rob who was plagued with injury, he did however manage to support both the 1XV with five appearances and the winning Wasps A Team side with an impressive 11 appearances.

2007/08 started well for the Wasps centre, running out against Gloucester in Wasps EDF opening game he has continued with a strong run of form to feature as a regular on the 1XV team sheet. Picking up game time across all three competitions, Rob made his intentions clear as he ran on off the bench against Llanelli Scarlets - scoring in just his second minute on the pitch for his first try of the season and he has contniued to put out impressive displays for the club.

Off pitch Rob continues with his rugby efforts in his role as backs coach at Ealing Rugby Club and socially enjoys poker and live music.
