Exeter signs Wasps hooker Dan Frost

Taunton-born Frost – who has previously represented Exeter in the A League – is one of several players who have been signed up by clubs across Europe in the wake of Wasps going into administration earlier this month.

Chiefs Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, said: “We’ve known Dan for some time, having watched him play initially at Taunton and then down at the Cornish Pirates, where he was linking up with a few of our guys who were on dual-reg down there.

“He did very well at both those clubs, especially the Pirates, and it was off that form that he picked up his move to Wasps. At the time, it didn’t quite work for us to bring him into the club, but we’ve watched him closely ever since.”
