Nick Frost, born on October 10, 1999, is an Australian rugby union player currently playing for the Brumbies in Super Rugby. He primarily plays in the lock position. Frost joined the Brumbies squad in 2020 and has been a key player for the team since then.

Standing as a giant second-rower, Frost is known for his immense size and speed, which is a rare combination for a player in his position. His lengthy and rangy running style sets him apart and has caught the attention of rugby experts. Former Wallabies coach Matt Williams has even compared him to the legendary John Eales, describing Frost as the most talented 20-year-old lock he has seen.

Frost's rugby journey began at Knox Grammar School in Sydney, where he showcased his talent and represented Australia at the schoolboy level. In 2017, he made the bold decision to sign with the New Zealand Super Rugby franchise, the Crusaders, on a three-year deal. He participated in their development program and also represented the Canterbury Colts.

However, Frost decided to return to Australia in 2019, snubbing the Waratahs to join the Brumbies for the 2020 and 2021 seasons. The Crusaders allowed him to cut his contract short, allowing him to come back to his home country. His decision to join the Brumbies proved to be a fruitful one, as he quickly established himself as a key player for the team.

Frost's talent and potential were recognized when he was named in the Junior Wallabies squad for the U20 World Rugby Championship. He made a significant impact in the competition, scoring an incredible long-range try and helping Australia progress to the semi-finals.

In November 2019, Frost was officially named in the Brumbies squad for the 2020 Super Rugby season. He made his debut off the bench in a victory over the Melbourne Rebels. His strong performances earned him an extension with the Brumbies, and he signed a contract that would keep him with the team until at least 2022.

In 2022, Frost achieved another milestone in his career when he earned his first Test cap for the Australian national team. He made his debut off the bench in the second Test against England, and a week later, he made his run-on debut at the SCG.

With his immense physicality, speed, and skill, Frost is poised to have a successful career in Australian rugby. As he continues to develop and make an impact both at the club and international levels, he is likely to become a key figure for the Brumbies and potentially don the Gold Green of the Wallabies on a regular basis.

Ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2023, Frost has been named in the training squad for Australia.
