Three youngsters have signed new wasps contract as it was revealed. Full-back Wallace, 19, has made five first-team appearances and back row Jones, also 19, made his debut against Newport Gwent Dragons two weeks ago.

Meanwhile 18-year-old Holmes has yet to make a first team start but has featured as travelling reserve.

Director of rugby Tony Hanks said: “We are delighted to retain the services of three very talented young players.

He added: “All thee players have already contributed to the Wasps cause, featuring in the A team and in training week-in week-out, whilst Jack and Sam have secured game time with the first XV.


Wasps Rugby Team have been dealt a major injury blow with the news that both Rob Webber and Dom Waldouck will not be available. Both players missed Saturday’s 33-25 home victory over London Irish after being injured in the previous weekend’s 18-16 win against Bath.

Webber could be out for up to three months, and may undergo surgery after rupturing his biceps tendon.

Waldouck is in rehab after a bulging disc left him with an arm weakness.


But suffered a fourth consecutive defeat at the hands of an impressive wasps side. A Dave Walder penalty and Tom Varndell try gave Wasps a deserved half-time lead as the hosts looked lacklustre.

Olly Barkley was on target with two penalty attempts after the break but Walder’s boot ensured Wasps’ victory.

A second successive home defeat for Bath means they could slip to ninth in the Premiership table if Harlequins beat winless Leeds on Sunday.

Wasps began with some stout defending in the opening quarter but Bath lacked the precision to get on the scoreboard.

Richard Haughton and Walder threatened the Bath line but both were denied by outside centre Jack Cuthbert before an infringement in front of the hosts’ posts allowed the Wasps fly-half to open the scoring.

It was Walder’s deft chip over the top that Varndell gathered to score on 33 minutes but his conversion drifted wide.
