Ealing Trailfinders have brought in younger winger Eparama Rokodrava from Wasps on a long-term deal. 

Rokodrava joined Wasps in the summer, but has spent time on loan at Bourneville Rugby this season, and has now made the move to West London where he is already training with the squad. 

The 18-year-old came through the ranks at City of Oxford College and has represented England at under-18 level, as well as being part of an under-20 training camp earlier this year. 

Speaking to club media upon his arrival, Rokodrava said: "I'm thrilled to have joined Ealing at such an exciting time for the club. 

"From all the discussions that I've had with everyone here, I've been really impressed by the ambition of the club, especially as it matches my own and I'm eager to get started." 

Rokodrava joins amidst the uncertainty due to administration at Wasps, the second Gallagher Premiership side to enter administration this year along with Worcester, and this has allowed the Trailfinders to bring in the highly touted youngster. 

Director of Rugby Ben Ward added: "We're really pleased to have secured the signing of one of the most exciting prospects in English rugby. 

"Some of the attributes and the skillset he poses can't be taught, and although he's not the finished article just yet, we're really excited to see how he progresses in the future."
