Davies commits his future with new deal

Date published: November 30 2016

Ospreys have secured the services of Sam Davies on a new long-term contract with the region.

The Wales international has produced more assists (6) than anyone else in the PRO12 this season and is Osprey’s top points scorer on 51.

The new contract is a boost for Ospreys since reports linked Davies with a move away in order to secure more regular game time at fly-half. The competition for the number 10 jersey is strong at Ospreys who also have Dan Biggar on their books.

But, whilst the exact length of the new contract is unclear, it appears Davies will be staying put for the foreseeable future.

“It’s a huge honour to represent my home region and I’m extremely fortunate to be able to sign up again at the Ospreys” said Davies.

“Everybody here has treated me really well and I’m just looking to repay them with some good performances that, hopefully, will help us get success on the field.

“The coaches have really helped me, letting me know how they think I could improve, and I’ve really focused on those points. I’ve worked hard at them and hopefully that can carry on. I’ll take all the advice I can get and hopefully improve my game more.

“I’m over the moon to get it all done and dusted. I’ve been away for the last few weeks so it’s exciting to be back in this environment and I’m looking forward to what the next few years has to offer.”
