The Cornish Pirates can confirm that hooker Dan Frost, aged 24, will be leaving the club at the end of the season to join Premiership side Wasps writes Phil Westren.

Having made 54 appearances for the Pirates since making his debut on loan from home town Taunton in 2017/18, this will come as no surprise to those who have seen him in action. A former North Petherton, Bath Academy and England under 18s player, he is an energetically robust and gifted forward who is clearly deserving of this opportunity.

Frost scored a hat trick of tries for the Pirates in their last game, a resounding 52-26 victory over Hartpury

Frost said he was grateful for the opportunity he has had to develop at the Pirates, saying:"The Cornish Pirates have played a huge role in getting me to this point, so I'd like to thank Gav, Paves and Morgs (Coaches: Gavin Cattle/Alan Pave/Chris Morgan), the players and everyone associated with the club for the opportunities they've given me over the last four years.

“I was gutted that fans were not able to be present for my final game at the Mennaye, but I hope I can help the team finish the Championship season strongly.

"Hey, once a Pirate always a Pirate!”
