Jacob Umaga signs new Wasps deal

Wasps have announced that Academy graduate Jacob Umaga has signed a new first-team deal.

Umaga was one of eight Senior Academy players to graduate into the first-team set-up last summer and has been in impressive form in the early stages of the 2019/20 campaign – including a 12-point haul in his man-of-the-match display in last Saturday’s win over at Agen in the European Challenge Cup.

Umaga, the son of ex-Samoa star Mike and nephew of former All Black Tana, has scored five tries and racked up 72 points in his 13 first-team appearances to date, while he also shone for Wasps A in the Premiership Rugby Shield last season, racking up 82 points in his seven outings, which included three tries, 26 conversions and five penalties.

The 21-year-old, who has also played at full-back, regularly featured for Yorkshire Carnegie in last season’s Championship, following a spell with Auckland in New Zealand where he was part of the side that won the Mitre 10 Cup in 2018.
