Sky Bet

London Wasps have been handed a boost with the news James Cannon and Will Taylor have agreed contract extensions at the club.

The extensions see the Aviva Premiership outfit continue to tie up the future of its young talent.

Tight-head prop Taylor, 22, is coming off the back of an impressive first season, having joined the club last summer from Ospreys, while 24-year-old Cannon is another forward continuing to press his claim for a starting spot week in week out, with 22 appearances last term.

Strong group

Welcoming the latest deals, Wasps director of rugby Dai Young said: "We've got a strong group of young forwards here and we want to make sure that these players develop and progress together at this club.

"Will is obviously a young player learning the ropes in a tough position but he's done very well over the past year and he is part of a good mix of talent battling for those front row positions.

"James is another player fighting for a place in a competitive pool of locks we have here, but he's improving all the time and both of these players have big futures here."
