Young signs contract extension

Wasps rugby director David Young has signed a contract extension with the Aviva Premiership club.

The former Wales prop and Cardiff Blues boss is about to embark on his third season in charge at Adams Park.

Wasps kick off the new league campaign against Harlequins at Twickenham on Saturday.

"It is an exciting time to be at Wasps, and there is a real positivity here about the future and where we are headed," Young told the club's official website.

"It has been great to have lots of players committing their own futures to Wasps in recent months with new contracts, and I am happy to do likewise.

"New ownership under Derek Richardson has already had a positive impact, and there is plenty to look forward to here."

And Wasps chief executive Nick Eastwood added: "Dai has done a wonderful job in difficult circumstances over the past two seasons, and we are delighted that he's signed a new contract.

"There is a lot of excitement about what the future holds at London Wasps, and Dai is a crucial part of that."
