Junior world player of the year Sam Davies has secured his first professional contract, signing a three-year contract with his home region Ospreys.
Davies was honoured by the International Rugby Board for his starring role as Wales made it to the final of last year's Junior World Championship, where they were beaten by England. The fly-half has already made 20 appearances for Ospreys last season.
"This is my home region and it's somewhere I am really happy to be," said Davies. "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."
