The loosehead prop came through at Edinburgh Rugby, being capped for Scotland at Under 17, 18 and 20 level, eventually going on to Captain the U20s.

Hislop joined Doncaster in 2018, after a stint with Rotherham Titans, where he was first coached by Lee Blackett.

The 29-year-old was a member of the Rugby Paper’s 2020 Greene King IPA Championship Dream Team and had a spell on loan with Saracens at the end of last season.

This season Hislop captained Doncaster to five straight wins to start their campaign.

Wasps Men’s Head Coach Lee Blackett said: “We are delighted to sign Bomber for next season.

“I really enjoyed my time with him at Rotherham, and I am really looking forward to working with him again at Wasps.

“Bomber has been one of the standout props in the Championship for quite a while now and he will really add to our front row options for next season.”

Hislop added: “I’m delighted to be joining Wasps, they are a big club, that play a great brand of rugby.

“I’m looking forward to testing myself back at that higher level on a daily basis and adding value to the squad.

“I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity for me and my family.”
