Sam Wolstenholme - Extends Contract

Date: 13 May 2020

“Being surrounded by quality, experienced teammates and taking on top-level players has been massive for my development.” Sam Wolstenholme


Another Loughborough University student, the 20-year-old scrum-half joined Wasps in the summer of 2019, after making 23 first-team appearances for Yorkshire Carnegie.

Made his Wasps debut in the Premiership Cup game against Saracens. His first try in Black and Gold came in a narrow defeat at Sale, in the same competition. Came off the bench to make his Premiership debut at Gloucester, last October. Has now made eight first team appearances and scored two tries in the European Challenge Cup victory in Agen.


“We’ve been delighted with the progress of Sam this year. With Ben Vellacott being injured most of the season it put a lot of pressure on our strength in depth at 9. Every time Sam has played, he’s been really impressive. He is a very mature rugby player for someone his age, leads well and is a Wasps type of 9 with the ability to speed a game up."
