Ospreys Delve in for Gareth

Wales international back-row forward Gareth Delve has signed for the Ospreys.

Delve, 32, will move to the Welsh region this summer.

It will be his first professional contract in Wales, having previously played for Bath, Gloucester and Super Rugby side the Melbourne Rebels before switching to club rugby in Japan.

The Ospreys announced that Cardiff-born Delve, who won the last of his 11 Wales caps against Italy during the 2010 Six Nations Championship, has agreed a two-year deal.

"I am lucky to have played in some great places, and I've travelled the world, but this opportunity to play in Wales was too good to say no to," Delve said.

" Of all the potential moves I could have made at this point of my career, this was the one that really excited me."
