Young front row prospects Simon McIntyre and Alec Hepburn have extended their contracts at London Wasps.

Young front row prospects Simon McIntyre and Alec Hepburn have extended their contracts at London Wasps.
 
McIntyre has already made a strong impact since joining London Wasps in 2011 having made 25 senior appearances to date. Having made the switch from tight to loosehead over the past year, the youngster is making impressive inroads into Director of Rugby Dai Young’s match-day squad, also showing his eye for the try-line with two well taken scores this season.

Hepburn, a current London Wasps Academy player, appeared in all ten games for the England Under-20 squad in 2011, spanning the Six Nations Championship and the IRB Junior World Championship in South Africa.

Though currently sitting out with an injury, the young loosehead, who will be a senior squad member next season, is eagerly awaiting his debut at competitive level for London Wasps after featuring a number of times in the A League.

Young said: “We’ve got a number of good front row prospects at the club and our challenge is to nurture these players through into our senior squad.

“Simon has already proved himself to be a very talented player for us and he’s making excellent progress, while Alec is a young player who is highly rated and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do when he’s back from injury.”
