Former Wales stalwart Bradley Davies is to stay on at United Rugby Championship side Ospreys at the age of 35.


A veteran of three Rugby World Cups, the Llantrisant born forward has represented Wales at all age grade levels, captaining the Wales U20s when they won the Grand Slam in 2005.

The renowned lineout technician also has experience of playing in the English Premiership with Wasps and was part of the Wales squad that reached the semi-finals of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The 6’6, 122kg second row told the Ospreys website: “The Ospreys were always Wales’ leading region, having won more silverware than any other side and that was the reason I signed for them initially.

“The ambition among the players, coaches and staff at the Ospreys is to do the same again. We have laid real foundations here under Toby and the drive is to reach our potential and build our own legacy.

“I feel I have a lot to offer as a player but I know my job here now is about sharing my experience with the younger players and see them reach their potential.

“My body feels good and I am performing to my best for the team and my numbers stack up. I just want to finish the job and get the Ospreys back where they should be.”


Davies battled back from a rough bout of Covid-19 that sidelined him for a significant period of time.
