Cornish Pirates have signed England Students wing Alex O'Meara from National One side Hartpury College.

The 22-year-old will join the Pirates' Player Development Foundation, which was set up last year to increase the number of young players at the club.

"He's an exciting player who I'm sure will flourish in the full-time environment," Pirates Director of Rugby Ian Davies told the club website.

"Alex will add to our exciting back-line options."

O'Meara has followed England Students team-mate Will Cargill, who has also signed for the Championship club this summer.

Davies was assistant coach to the pair with the national side.
