Hooker James Buckland has joined London Wasps after leaving Leicester Tigers at the end of last season.

The England U-21 and Saxons international appeared in 26 games for Tigers last term and 69 games in total in the three seasons following his debut in September 2004.
At Wasps, Buckland will team up with prop Michael Holford, who has also joined the Adams Park club from Tigers.
Buckland, who was born in Aylesbury, said: "I'm really pleased to be joining my local club. I'm hoping this is to be a long-term move for me."
Wasps director of rugby Ian McGeechan said: "His arrival will continue the increase in competitive levels within the squad. James comes with some important experience and I'm very happy that he is joining the squad."
