Wasps trio Kearnan Myall, Dan Robson and Thomas Young sign new deals

WASPS trio Kearnan Myall, Dan Robson and Thomas Young have all committed their future to the club by putting pen-to-paper on new deals.

Scrum half Robson is enjoying his second season at Wasps and has already cemented himself as a regular for Dai Young’s side having made 32 appearances.

Myall has made 74 appearances for Wasps since joining from Sale Sharks ahead of the 2013/14 season and has recently returned from a long-term knee injury.

The England Saxons lock is one of the shrewdest lineout operators in the Premiership and is also recognised for his pace and athleticism.

Flanker Young continues to thrive under the tutelage of George Smith, and has also shown an eye for the try line scoring six tries in 20 appearances last season.

Now in his third season with Wasps, Young’s performances for Wasps last season also put him on the senior squad radar and was on standby for Wales’ tour of New Zealand, before injury cruelly cut short his season.

“I’m really pleased that three more players have shown their commitment to Wasps and their belief in the potential of this squad,” said Wasps’ director of rugby Dai Young.

“Dan, Kearnan and Thomas are talented players who also have a very strong work ethic.

“They’ve made a significant impact in the squad’s progression over the past couple of seasons and the exciting thing is, they still have a lot of potential to fulfil.

“I’ve always said that retaining quality players is just as important as being able to recruit quality players and we are now in a position where we can really start to build continuity and consistency within our squad.

“We have a strong backbone of players who have been with the club through thick and thin and that core group is growing in experience and stature, which is good foundation to build on moving forwards.”
