Campagnaro, who has scored nine tries in 36 matches for Italy, said: ‘The opportunity to join Wasps was something no player can turn down.

‘Wasps play an exciting brand of rugby and have a number of talented individuals. I’m very much looking forward to testing myself and playing at the Ricoh Arena.’

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young added: ‘Michele is an experienced international who predominantly plays at 13, but having also played on the wing and at 15, his versatility will be of huge benefit to the team throughout the season.’
