King extends Ospreys stay

Forward James King has agreed a new three-year deal to keep him at the Ospreys until the summer of 2016.

King, who can play at lock or in the back row, enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last term and has continued his impressive performances this season, making outstanding contributions to recent wins over Toulouse and the Scarlets.

The 22-year-old said: "I've been here since 2008 and it's gone well for me. This is my region and I'm very happy to stay here.

"Last season I was fortunate enough to get involved a lot more and get more game time. I got to play in the RaboDirect PRO12 final, which was really great.

"I'm still developing as a player though and this is the place for me to do that."
