Wasps Sign Ireland International Prop John Ryan

Date: 4 Apr 2022


Wasps are delighted to confirm the signing of Ireland international prop John Ryan, who will join the Club next season from Munster Rugby.  

The 24-time capped international has appeared nearly 200 times for his home province Munster.

The tighthead-prop made his international debut for Ireland in 2016 and was part of the 2018 Grand Slam winning Six Nations squad.

The 33-year-old was also a member of Ireland’s 31-man squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Ryan had a short loan spell at fellow Gallagher Premiership side London Irish in 2012.

Wasps Men’s Head Coach Lee Blackett said: “We are very pleased to be bringing John to the Club for next season.

“He is a quality scrummager, who’s experience will be a significant asset for us in 2022/23.

“John has a huge amount of experience of being at the business end of competitions with Munster and Ireland.

“His desire to win things really grabbed my attention when we met with him. He is a real team player and will be a great bloke to have around the Club next season.”

Ryan added: “I am delighted to have signed with Wasps ahead of next season. It’s an exciting challenge and one that me and my wife and kids are very much looking forward to.

“Wasps have a very exciting coaching team and playing squad. I hope I can add to their vision and goals over the coming years.”
