According to Rugby Inside Line, they have secured the signings of two exciting prospects with Ben Morris and Joe Atkinson set to make the step up to the Premiership and join Wasps in the summer.
An experienced forward, Morris joined Nottingham from Newcastle Falcons in 2015 and has impressed the Championship over the last two seasons.
Meanwhile, part-time farmer Atkinson joined the Scots from Cornish Pirates ahead of the 16/17 season and was one of the standout performers during his debut season at the Athletic Ground.
He missed just four matches all season as he became an irreplaceable member of the back-row, which also saw him cross the try-line on six ocassions.
