Prior to joining Wasps, Atkinson had built a reputation as one of the Championship’s best openside flankers.
Having started his career at Loughborough Students, Atkinson, who has been capped by England at age group and students levels, caught the attention of Cornish Pirates and spent three seasons in Penzance before heading to the Exiles where he scored 11 tries in 50 appearances and was named as players’ player-of-the-season at the Richmond Athletic Ground.
