Tagicakibau leaves Irish and joins Wasps

Sailosi Tagicakibau has left London Irish and joined London Wasps ahead of next season.
The 31-year-old Samoan winger, who spent the latter part of last season on loan at the Stormers,  made 158 appearances for the Exiles scoring 58 tries along the way since joining in December 2005.
Wasps’ Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “Sailosi has proved himself at the highest level, representing Samoa in three Rugby World Cups, and has been viewed as one of the most destructive wingers in the Aviva Premiership.
“As we still have a few niggling injuries in our backline, which have been carried over from last season, when Sailosi became available I felt it was an opportunity we should take.
“I am pleased with the depth and quality we are building in our Wasps squad. Sailosi’s experience will really benefit the team and his power and pace will provide another attacking threat in our backline, on top of his solid defensive game.”
Director of Rugby Brian Smith said: “Losi has been a great competitor for London Irish over the last nine years. We would like to thank him for all of his efforts and wish him and his family all the best for the future.
“We are entering a new chapter at London Irish and have assembled a squad of players that can take the Club forward and achieve the long term goals set out by our new owners.”
