Danny Wilson set to join Wasps coaching team

Wasps have confirmed that Cardiff Blues head coach Danny Wilson will join their coaching coaching team for 2018/19 season.

Wilson will concentrate on the forwards while Nottingham Rugby head coach Ian Costello will also be joining Dai Young's backroom staff.

The 40 year old joined the Cardiff Blues as head coach in 2015 after stints with the Dragons, the Scarlets, Wales U20's and Bristol.

We have operated with a smaller coaching team than most clubs for a while now.

The plan was always to bolster it, as we already have our S&C team, but I have taken my time to make sure I bring in the right people who really add to what we’re doing and complement the quality we already have within our coaching department.

While I have only worked with Danny for a limited time when he was part of the Academy set-up at Cardiff Blues, I know he has gone on to forge a very strong reputation as a quality coach who is highly regarded within the game, having made a big impact with the teams he’s worked with.
