Ospreys scrum-half Tom Habberfield has signed a new three-year contract at the Welsh region.

The Wales Under-20 and Sevens international made his Ospreys debut in October 2011 and has scored three tries in 67 appearances.

"I've been part of the system here a few years now, I've grown up here, so I'm excited about what the future brings," Habberfield told the official Ospreys website.

"When you look at the other nines in the squad, with Brendon Leonard playing well and Rhys Webb back at the weekend, it makes you realise the standard I have to hit consistently every week if I want to stay around the matchday 23.

"It's good to have that challenge, it makes sure I keep working to push my own game on."

Ospreys rugby general manager Andrew Millward said: "Tom has really matured in our environment over the last couple of years.

"He's someone we are proud to have nurtured through our player pathway, and we look forward to seeing him continue making a huge day to day contribution."
