Bradley Davies is returning to Welsh rugby having signed a National Dual Contract with the Welsh Rugby Union and the Ospreys.
“I’m really pleased to have signed a National Dual Contract and to be linking up with the Ospreys,” revealed Davies.
“I would like to thank Wasps for the last couple of years, I have really enjoyed my time at the club, and I’m looking to finish on a high over the next couple of weekends.
“For me though the opportunity to return to Wales on NDC was too good to turn down, the contracts focus on getting the best out of the players and provides support on and off the field and that is really important.
“I’m excited to be joining the Ospreys, it will be a fresh start for me, the region has big ambitions and I want to play a part in that. It will be great to team up with the likes of Alun Wyn and the wealth of young Welsh second rows at the region. I’m not returning to Wales to retire, I want to push on and the NDC and the Ospreys allow me to do that.”
Wales head coach Warren Gatland, added: “It is great to see Bradley returning to Wales to play his club rugby and to have signed an NDC. It is important we create an environment that is attractive to our players, and I believe with the number of players retained and returning we are getting on the right track.”
