Aviva Premiership Rugby Club London Wasps have added to their second-row options by signing Namibian lock Heinz Koll until the end of the season.

Koll joins Wasps, linking up with fellow countryman Tinus Du Plessis, following their recent World Cup campaign, during which Koll started all four games for his country, and impressed with his physicality and strong ball carrying, which was epitomised by a 40 metre break and try in his country's pool stage game against Wales.

The imposing 28 year old second-row will add to the options in the second row which have recently been shortened due to injury.

He will not be available for selection in the club's Amlin Challenge Cup games but will be available for both the Anglo Welsh LV=Cup and Aviva Premiership.

London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said, "Heinz will bring with him a great amount of physicality which I was impressed with during his time at the World Cup. "

"It is public knowledge that we have been hit hard by injuries so his arrival will add to our currently limited options in the second row."

Koll said,The Premiership is obviously one of the best league's in the World and I am delighted to get the chance to join Wasps."

"I am really looking forward to getting involved and hopefully my arrival can really add something to the squad."
