Justin Tipuric has turned down offers from France and England to instead put pen to paper on a new three-year deal with the Ospreys.
The 25-year old made his 93rd appearance for the Ospreys at the weekend, five years after making his debut as a second half replacement in an LV= Cup game against Northampton at the Liberty Stadium. His first start came the following weekend in the same competition, away to Bath, where he also grabbed the first of 11 tries to date.
He said: “I’m just incredibly happy to have sorted this out so that I can focus solely on my rugby. I’m a local boy who is privileged to enjoy playing for my home region, and now I can do that for another three years.
“It’s very flattering to be linked with the clubs that I have been, but my focus was always on signing a new contract here. That’s what I always wanted, and that’s what I’ve done.
“We are working hard here to build something for the long term, we have some quality young talent coming through and you get the feeling that something special is coming. I’m pleased that I can continue doing my bit and be a part of it.”
