Dan Robson has committed his future to Aviva Premiership club Wasps, it has been revealed.

The 26-year-old scrum-half has signed a new long-term contract to remain at the Ricoh Arena outfit.

Robson has so far been overlooked for England duty despite consistent club form but Wasps rugby director Dai Young insists the former Gloucester star can still force his way into Eddie Jones' Test ranks.

"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," said Young.

"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."

Former England Under-20s star Robson joined Wasps from Gloucester in 2015, and has since racked up 81 appearances for the Coventry club.

"I am happy to re-sign at Wasps where I have really enjoyed my first three seasons," said Robson.

"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."
