Wasps director of cricket Dai Young championed the abilities of Dan Robson that have ‘made him one of the best scrum halves in Europe’, after the 26-year-old extended his deal with the Premiership side.
Robson has signed a new long-term contract having moved to the Ricoh Arena from Gloucester in 2015 and has proved a figure of consistency to make the nine jersey his own this season.

“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,” Young told Wasps official website.
“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.”
This season has been Robson’s most fruitful, scoring ten tries to combine to his total in a Wasps shirt to 27 from 81 appearances.
“I am happy to re-sign at Wasps where I have really enjoyed my first three seasons,” Robson said.
“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.”
