Davies makes move to Ospreys

International Rugby Board junior world player of the year Sam Davies has signed his first professional contract with the Ospreys.

The fly-half, who has signed a three-year deal, was honoured by the IRB after starring for Wales in their run to the final of last summer's Junior World Championship.

Davies has already taken part in a senior Welsh trial and is delighted to commit his immediate future to the region.

"This is my home region and it's somewhere I am really happy to be," said Davies, who has already played 20 times for Ospreys this season.

"I've really enjoyed being involved with the senior team and getting some experience this season, and I've got a real challenge ahead of me over the next three years to keep on improving and to establish myself fully within the group."
