“The chance to play for such a prestigious club as Wasps is one I couldn’t turn down.” Myles Edwards


New signing Myles Edwards, a 23-year-old lock, was born in Handsworth and attended Fairfax School in Sutton Coldfield. A late starter, he only began playing rugby at the age of twelve. Five years later, he joined the Worcester Warriors development programme, combining rugby with studying at Worcester Sixth Form College. After a year at Sixways, he moved to Top 14 side La Rochelle, where he spent a season. That was followed by two seasons with ProD2 Aurillac, before he joined Oyonnax, another ProD2 outfit, at the start of the 2019/20 campaign. By the time coronavirus brought the French season to a premature end, he had made 10 first team appearances.

Joins Wasps for the 2020/21 season.


“Myles is a hungry young athlete, with a huge amount of potential.”
