“I can’t wait to get to work with everyone there and keep progressing my rugby at the highest level.

“Pirates have played a huge role in progressing my career to this point, so I’d like to thank everyone associated with the club for the opportunities they’ve given me.

“I hope I can help them finish the Championship season strongly.”

Wasps head coach Lee Blackett is delighted with the signing of Frost and is confident that his experience in the Championship will come handy for the club.

“We are delighted to sign an exciting young English hooker like Dan for next season.

“Dan has impressed in the Championship for a number of seasons now. We believe that he will be able to make the step up to the Premiership and he will really add to our impressive group of hookers at the club.

“We are all looking forward to working with Dan and helping him reach his potential in a Black and Gold shirt.”

Wasps are positioned eighth in the Gallagher Premiership table with eight wins from 19 games.
