Biyi Alo - Extends Contract

Date: 12 May 2020

“I've come along way since being at Wasps. I just want to carry on improving and showing how much this group means to me.” Biyi Alo

 

Born in London, the giant tighthead prop represented England at U18 and U20 levels and studied at Loughborough University. Began his professional career with Saracens and made loan appearances for Championship side Bedford Blues. Moved to Worcester in 2016 and played 30 times during his two years at Sixways.

After joining Coventry at the beginning of the 2018/19 season, he was brought into the Wasps squad as injury cover and made his first team debut in a narrow defeat at Leicester. Became a full-time squad member this season and a series of strong performances has made him a first team regular. Has made 11 appearances, scoring two tries.

 

"Biyi is a very popular member of the squad and has worked hard at his game since arriving at Wasps. He’s done really well on and off the field and deservedly got his opportunities recently. His set piece game has improved massively, while still being a big threat with ball in hand around the field. As coaches, we look forward to working with Biyi as we still feel he will only get better.”
