Owain James has been at Wasps for over a decade, having joined the Club as a 12-year-old.
James was coached by his dad John through his early years while playing for London Welsh. Then a fly-half, James represented the Wasps Academy all the way to Under 18s, before being invited to join the Senior Academy in 2015/16 when he left Harrow school.
The young back was nominated in 2017/18 for the Anglo-Welsh Cup Breakthrough Player Award and has gone on to represent Wasps A in the Premiership Shield regularly on the wing and at full-back.
Although James was restricted to only two Premiership Rugby Shield and two Premiership Rugby Cup appearances in 2018/19 due to an ACL injury, he was promoted to the Wasps first-team squad for the 2019/20 season.
