Wasps have announced the re-signing of star scrum-half Dan Robson on a new long-term contract.
Since arriving at the club from Gloucester at the start of the 2015/16 season, the 26-year-old has established himself as Wasps' first choice no.9 despite fierce competition from Joe Simpson.
The former England u20 scrum-half has made 81 appearances in the yellow and black, scoring 27 tries for a prolific scoring rate from halfback.
Since arriving at Wasps, Robson has helped the Coventry-based side reach a Premiership semi-final and final as well as European quarter-final and semi-finals in consecutive seasons.
Wasps' Director of rugby Dai Young said:
“Dan has been outstanding for us this season. His consistency has been really impressive, and when he is really on song he has the ability to frighten defenders.
“He has worked hard at his game over the last three years, and as a result is now one of the best scrum halves in Europe.
“At 26, there is still plenty more to come from Dan, who like a number of our other English-qualified players should be a big part of our side for the next half-a-dozen years at least.
“I am obviously biased, but if Dan continues to deliver the same level of performance for us, it can surely only be a matter of time before his England chance comes.”
Robson also commented on the news of his new contract earlier today, expressing his delight of re-signing with one of the most attacking sides in Europe.
“I am happy to re-sign at Wasps where I have really enjoyed my first three seasons. It’s very exciting to be part of what is shaping up to be a really good spell for the club.
“Like every player I very much want to be part of a squad that wins something and I believe I have every chance of doing that at Wasps.
“Dai, the coaches and the staff have all been fantastic to me and I’m really looking forward to working with them some more in the coming years.”
