Webb pens new Ospreys deal

Wales international scrum-half Rhys Webb has signed a new contract with the Ospreys.

Webb's three-year deal will keep him at the Welsh region until 2016, the Ospreys announced.

The 24-year-old has won three Wales caps, making his debut in last season's RBS 6 Nations game against Italy.

He also featured against the Barbarians and during Wales' second Test defeat in Australia last summer. Webb was also a member of Wales' 2009 World Cup-winning sevens squad.

"I am absolutely thrilled," he said.

"To be able to commit to another three years with my home region is fantastic. It's a brilliant environment here - the only place I want to play rugby."
