WASPS scrum-half Nic Berry has signed a new deal at the club after enjoying an impressive season in the black and gold shirt.

Berry, 27, joined Wasps two seasons ago from Racing Metro and has become a key member of the squad with 40 appearances to date.

He said: “I am delighted to have renewed my contract with Wasps.

“I totally believe we have the coaching staff and players to restore the club to where it should be.

“Both my wife and I have made some great friends through the club and we are excited to be extending our stay here in London.”

Wasps director of Rugby Dai Young said: “I have been really impressed with Nic this season. He is a talented number nine with a great attitude and I’m delighted that he’s staying here.

“We’ve got a pool of very good scrum-halves in place for next season and competition for places is extremely healthy.”

Berry will continue his tussle for the number nine shirt with Charlie Davies after England international Joe Simpson was cruelly ruled out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.

Berry joins a growing list of players who have signed contract extensions at Wasps in recent weeks, with Hugo Southwell, Tim Payne, Tinus Du Plessis and James Cannon all agreeing new deals.
