Wasps Announce the Signing of Alex Schwarz on a Short-Term Loan Deal

Date: 10 Feb 2021

 

Wasps are delighted to confirm the signing of Cornish Pirates scrum-half Alex Schwarz on a short-term loan deal.

With a couple of scrum-halves away on international duty and ruled out with injury, the former Wales Under 18 representative will provide much needed cover.  

The 27-year-old joined Pirates in 2018 from RGC – Rygbi Gogledd Cymru – who compete in Wales’ Principality Premiership.

Schwarz has also played for Italian Top 12 side Rugby Colorno and represented Scarlets Premiership Select in the British & Irish Cup.

Lee Blackett, Wasps Head Coach, said: “With Dan Robson and Will Porter unavailable to us, we needed to bring in some more cover at scrum-half.

“Alex is an experienced player, who will add a lot to our young scrum-half group for the next month or so. We look forward to welcoming him to the club.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to Alan Paver, Gavin Cattle and everyone at Cornish Pirates for the allowing us to take a number of their players on loan over the past few weeks.

“It is obvious from how easily their loan players have adapted to our setup, that they are a very well-coached club.”
