Ospreys boosted by Tipuric deal

28th February 2020, 07:39 by Alex Jack

Ospreys captain Justin Tipuric is determined to bring success to the club after penning a new three-year deal with the Pro14 outfit.

Having spent his entire professional career with the Ospreys, Tipuric could well end up finishing his playing days with his boyhood club.

The British & Irish Lions flanker made his Ospreys debut at the age of 20 and now the 30-year-old is hoping he can bring success back to the club following a run of two wins from 18 matches this term.

"I watched the club as a supporter and to get the chance to play for them was always a big thing for me," said Tipuric. "I used to come and watch the Ospreys with my family and friends and I have grown up here.

"This has been a difficult season, nobody would deny that, but now hopefully we can start building for the future.

"My friends are here, my family are here, and I want to see the Ospreys get back to where they used to be."
