New England call-up Dan Robson, flanker Thomas Young and lock Kearnan Myall have all signed new contracts with Wasps.

Former Gloucester scrum-half Robson has just won selection to England's Elite Player Squad for the forthcoming autumn internationals.

The 24-year-old has been rewarded for a fine start to the new campaign, after previously representing England at Saxons level.

Boss Dai Young's son Thomas impressed in Wasps' back-row last term, while former Sale lock Myall has made 74 appearances for the club since arriving in 2013.

"It was a really easy decision to re-sign," said Robson.

"I'm loving my time here at Wasps and appreciate the confidence Dai (Young) has shown in me. I'm really enjoying the attacking brand of rugby we play and I feel my game has improved massively since I've been at Wasps."

Thomas Young's performances last term put him on the brink of a senior Wales call-up, being left on stand-by for Wales' tour of New Zealand.

Injury denied him the chance to compete for the chance to tour with Warren Gatland's side, but he too admitted to few qualms about completing a new deal with Wasps.

"I have really enjoyed my time at the club and feel like I have developed a lot as a player," said Thomas Young.

"I am very excited about the direction the club is moving in and the calibre of players we have got at Wasps is a massive draw. I feel like this is the right place for me to carry on developing."

Rugby director Dai Young believes the trio of players committing their futures further underscores Wasps' continuing progress.

"I'm really pleased that three more players have shown their commitment to Wasps and their belief in the potential of this squad," said Dai Young.

"Dan, Kearnan and Thomas are talented players who also have a very strong work ethic. They've made a significant impact in the squad's progression over the past couple of seasons and the exciting thing is, they still have a lot of potential to fulfil."
