Wasps have signed hooker James Buckland from Premiership rivals Leicester.

The Aylesbury-born ex-England Under-21 player, who joined the Tigers from Northampton in 2002, had to play second fiddle to George Chuter at Leicester.

He made 12 senior starts last season and can expect more chances at Wasps with Raphael Ibanez at the World Cup.

"A lot of people have gone out of their way to get me here, and I want to make sure I work hard and do well to repay their faith in me," Buckland said.
