Date published: May 13 2016

The Ospreys have confirmed that back row forward Gareth Delve has been released from his contract with immediate effect.

"We wish Gareth all the best for the future," said an Ospreys press statement.

The 33-year-old, who played in 11 Tests for Wales, moved to the Ospreys in 2015 from Japanese Top League side NEC Green Rockets on a two-year contract.

He only played two matches for the Ospreys though, with his last appearance made in October 2015 as a replacement against Treviso.

Delve also had stints in the Premiership with Bath and Gloucester as well as Super Rugby outfit the Melbourne Rebels.
