Ospreys Rugby have announced Luke Price as the seventh player to sign a new deal to stay at the Liberty Stadium.
With his current contract expiring at the end of the month, 23-year-old Price has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with his home region.
“Playing for the Ospreys is what I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid” said the former Abercrave RFC youngster.
“It’s been a mixed season for me. It started off with being selected to start the first game but then picking up an injury, which kept me out of the first half of the season. I’ve had a bit of a taste at the back end of this season now, so I just want to keep going and be involved as much as I can.
“It’s a nice way to top off the season, signing on with the Ospreys. I’ve played more games this year, even with the injury, and next year is about continuing that, fighting to get into the squad as much as I can across the whole of the season.”
After coming through the ranks, playing age-grade rugby for the region and Wales, Price featured regularly in the Welsh Premiership for Neath.
His Ospreys debut came as long ago as January 2014, away to Exeter Chiefs as an 18-year old. He had to wait almost three years for his next senior appearance, but he notably picked up the man of the match award in only his second Guinness PRO12 start, against Glasgow in February 2017.
Cory Allen, Dan Evans, Luke Morgan, Scott Otten, Nicky Smith and Gareth Thomas have also signed new deals, with Gareth Anscombe and Forwards Coach, Carl Hogg, confirmed as new additions for next season
