London Wasps have been handed a timely boost with the news six of their players have signed contract extensions.
Club captain Chris Bell, Italy internationals Andrea Masi and Carlo Festuccia, Kearnan Myall, Jake Cooper-Woolley and Charlie Davies have all put pen to paper.
"We are delighted that these six players have all signed new contracts with us," Wasps rugby director David Young said. "There is a range of experience within that group, and that is a reflection of what we are trying to build in our squad as a whole.
"We have some hugely-experienced guys in our team now who will help to influence the club's direction, as well as some talented younger players who we hope will provide the backbone for Wasps in the long term."
