LV=Cup makes Lundberg’s dream come true

A first ever appearance for the London Wasps senior squad saw 18-year-old prop Alex Lundberg fulfil a dream held since he first pulled on the black and gold as a six-year-old.

Lundberg came off the bench in the narrow loss to Saracens last weekend and in doing so became the first ever player to progress all the way from Wasps FC Minis all the way through to the senior London Wasps team.

He said: “It was a dream come true and very surreal to be honest. My Mum, Dad and my brother were there in the crowd so it was a brilliant moment for me to come on.”

Lundberg (pictured as a youngster with his brother Matt in his Wasps kit alongside former player Craig Dowd) represented England at both U18 and U20 level last season, and he has high hopes for the season ahead.

“I would obviously love it if any other chances came my way to play for London Wasps this season and I am really grateful the LV=Cup gave me the chance to make my debut. However I must get my head down with Rosslyn Park and get as much game time under my belt as possible there first. When I get the chance to train with the senior team here at Wasps I will be doing my best to take on board as much as I can. Dai Young is a great person for me to learn from and any tips I can take from him will be massive for me. My scrummaging has been a big focus over the last few seasons but I have a lot to learn yet.”

Representing England at U20s level again this season is also a key target.

“Last year I played against Italy and I learned an awful lot in the training week with the squad. Now I am a bit older I want to try and make the most of those chances with England and try and get myself into the 6 Nations squad. There’s a Junior World Cup at the end of the season but first and foremost I need to get my head down and get into the earlier squads.”
