Dan Robson to join Wasps at end of season

Wasps today confirmed the signing of England Saxons’ scrum half Dan Robson from Gloucester Rugby at the end of the 2014/15 season.

Robson is seen as one of the brightest young prospects in the game and has accrued significant Aviva Premiership experience with 51 appearances already under his belt at the age of 22. Since making his debut for Gloucester in 2010, he has made 74 competitive appearances and scored 24 points.

Robson, who began playing rugby in his home city of Stoke-on-Trent, was part of the England U20 squad that won the 2011 Six Nations Grand Slam and reached the final of the Junior World Cup, before going on to represent the England Saxons.

Following another impressive season in 2013-14, Robson was called up to the England Senior summer training squad, ahead of the tour to New Zealand and clash with the Barbarians.

Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young highlighted the array of skills Robson will bring to Wasps: “Dan is quick around the breakdown, has a great turn of pace and a really good kicking game.
 
“We are already strong in the scrum half department and, in my opinion, this season Joe Simpson has been playing some of the best rugby of his career. But signing a player of Dan’s potential and skill level will only help to raise the standard and competition for places even further and get the best out of the squad as we look to take the Club to the next level in the Aviva Premiership.”
