Bedford have announced that Wasps duo Piers O’Conor and Alex Lundberg will both be available to the Goldington Road club for the 2016/17 Greene King IPA Championship season.

Following a hugely successful campaign, 21-year-old prop Lundberg and 20-year-old fullback O’Conor will be back with the Blues once more for the coming season.

Speaking about the latest signings, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said: “Piers and Alex made a huge impact during their time with us last season and I’m very grateful to Wasps for allowing them to spend another season with us at Goldington Road.

“Both lads had plenty of game time last year and I’m sure that another successful season in the Championship will benefit their Premiership futures hugely.”

Wasps’ Senior Academy Manager Matt Davies said: “We’re really pleased that both Alex and Piers will return to Bedford on a dual-registration basis next season.

“Both players have benefited from their time there on loan last season and we’re all looking forward to watching as they continue to improve in Mike Rayer’s side.

“Bedford is a club that lets young players thrive and we’re confident that it is going to be a good environment for the both to continue their development next season.”
