Daly Extends Wasps Deal
I was really pleased for him that he was able to show everyone exactly what he’s capable of at the very highest level during the Lions tour.
Elliot Daly has extended his contract with last year’s Aviva Premiership runners up Wasps.
The 24-year-old played a pivotal role on the 2017 British & Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand. He started all three Tests against New Zealand, kicking a crucial long-range penalty in the drawn third Test and proving an attacking threat throughout the series.
Speaking about his decision to stay at the Ricoh Arena, Daly said: “I’m really pleased to have extended my contract with Wasps. In some ways it seems like yesterday that I made my Wasps debut. In other ways, when you think of the progress we’ve made as a club and squad over the past five years it feels like a life-time ago.”
Head coach Dai Young, himself a Lions Tourist in 1989, was delighted to see Daly prove his quality on the world stage during the summer.
He said: ‘He has consistently been one of our stand-out players over recent seasons and has seized every opportunity that has come his way on the back of those performances. I was really pleased for him that he was able to show everyone exactly what he’s capable of at the very highest level during the Lions tour.
A product of the Wasps Academy, Daly has made 157 appearances for Wasps since making his debut back in 2010 and has also won 13 international caps for England
