Jacob Umaga, the nephew of former All Black Tana and son of ex-Samoa star Mike, was one of eight Wasps Academy players to be promoted to the senior squad ahead of the 2019/20 season.
Umaga enjoyed a fine 2018/19 season for Wasps A in the Premiership Rugby Shield, racking up 82 points in his seven outings, which included three tries, 26 conversions and five penalties.
The fly-half, who has also played at full-back, regularly featured for Yorkshire Carnegie in their 2018/19 Championship campaign, following a spell with Auckland in New Zealand, where he was part of the side that won the Mitre 10 Cup in 2018.
Umaga has also represented England Under 18s and Under 20s.
The exciting young stand-off helped Wasps reach a sixth consecutive Premiership 7s final in September 2019 - where he picked up the record for most points scored in a single event with 61 accrued across the two days.
