WASPS have strengthened their front row options with another international signing for next season.

They have returned to Italy to snap up experienced Italy prop Lorenzo Cittadini from Benetton Treviso.

The 31-year-old has won 32 caps for his country and follows fellow Italy internationals Andrea Masi and Carlo Festuccia to Wasps.

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young said: "Lorenzo will be an excellent addition to our squad next year.

“I rate him as a very good prop at the highest level and his experience at international level will be a real boost for us.

"We've got some very good young props here at Wasps who will learn a lot from working with him. We want to build a squad which has strength in depth in every position and bringing in players like this will help us continue to build on that aim."

Wasps have already announced new signings Bradley Davies, James Gaskell and Rob Miller, and more are expected in the coming weeks.
