Lock Nick Frost has committed his long-term future with Rugby Australia and Brumbies after signing a new contract until 2025.

Frost started his professional rugby debut with provincial side Canberra Vikings in 2019 and went on to make his Super Rugby debut with Brumbies in 2020. Since then, he has gone on to make 30 appearances for the club and was part of the squad that clinched the Super Rugby AU title in 2020.

“To know I’ll be here in Australian rugby with the Brumbies for another three years is awesome," he told the club's official website.

“My desire has always been to play for the Wallabies and to have success with the Brumbies and I’m grateful it's worked out that way and now I can fully focus on working towards my goals here at home.

“The Brumbies is a special place and having spent some time around the Wallabies environment last year, I’m keen and focused on getting better every day and I’m stoked to be staying."

The 22-year-old was also part of the Australia Under 20 side that reached the final in the U20 World Championship in 2019. He was also selected in Dave Rennie's wider Wallabies squads in both 2021 and 2022.

Brumbies head coach, Dan McKellar heaped praises on Frost and expressed delight in him re-committing his future with the club.

“Having Nick stay in Australian rugby and with the Brumbies is fantastic.”

“Nick’s a rare talent with his mobility and height, he has the right mindset around his areas to grow and improve and he’s a popular member of the group.

“Retaining him is significant for the Brumbies and he’ll be an important contributor for many years to come."
