England U20 star commits to Wasps
WASPS star Joe Launchbury has signed a new three-year deal.
The second row forward enjoyed a storming finish to the season, cementing his place in the England U20 side during the Grand Slam and booking his ticket to the Junior World Cup this summer.
Launchbury said: “From a personal point of view this season has been great for me and I didn’t think I would get as many first team opportunities as I have.
"I’ve got a lot to learn and with the quality of coaching we get at Wasps as well as the experienced players I have around me, this is the right place for me.”
Wasps head coach Shaun Edwards said: “Players like Joe are the future of Wasps and he is a dedicated professional who works incredibly hard on all aspects of his game.
"He is improving all the time and hopefully that can result in him having a very successful career at all levels.”
