Brumbies have announced that lock Nick Frost has signed a new deal with the club at least until the end of 2022 season.

Frost started his professional rugby career with National Rugby Championship side Canberra Vikings in 2019 and a year later he went on to make his Super Rugby debut for Brumbies.

The 21-year-old has made 16 appearances for Brumbies and also featured for Australia Under 20 side during the Junior World Championship in 2019.

“I’m really happy to be staying with the Brumbies for at least another year," told the official website of the club.

“Working with Dan (McKellar) and Laurie (Fisher) has been huge for my development the last couple of years, and I’m really enjoying my time at the club and in Canberra.

“We have a special group here, we’re very tight-knit and I’m excited to stay and help contribute to the ongoing success at the club.”

Brumbies head coach Dan McKellar is confident that Frost has the credentials to become an integral part of the club in the coming years.

“We’re thrilled Nick will be staying at the club next season," he said.

“Since he joined the club he has taken on all feedback, worked hard in the gym and on the field to make sure he’s ready for Super Rugby and he’s gotten better and better as a result of that professional attitude.

“Frosty was a high-priority retention for the club and while he’s an important part of the side already we feel he can be one of the pillars of our pack for years to come.”

Brumbies started their Super Rugby Trans Tasman campaign with a 29-31 defeat to Crusaders and will face Chiefs in the second round on 22nd May.
