The Ospreys have announced they have signed fly half Stephen Myler on a one-year deal.
Myler is a European Challenge Cup and Premiership final winner with Northampton Saints in England. He has more than a decade’s experience of English and European rugby during his time at Franklin Gardens.
He was man of the match in both finals when the Saints completed an historic Premiership and European Challenge Cup double in 2014.
Myler was his side’s controller and points machine, playing 330 games and scoring 2655 points and left the club in 2018. He then played a key role in London Irish’s resurgence guiding them to back to the English Premiership at the first attempt.
“As soon as I spoke to Toby, someone I know from the Premiership and who is highly respected and regarded, the chance to be involved with the Ospreys was too good a chance to miss,” said Myler.

11 weird, wonderful and wretched England one-cap wonders
Does England waste talent? It’s something fans of the Red Rose have been asking themselves for decades and it’s something a number of high-profile names in the game have accused the country of doing.
The Newcastle and Saracens legend, who made 245 Premiership appearances, won a deserved first England cap against Canada in the Investec Challenge match in 2004 and scored a try.
After an injury to Alex Goode he was called up to the England squad in May 2013. He made his début as a substitute for Freddie Burns in England’s victory over Argentina, scoring a conversion.
He made his full test debut against Argentina on 8 June on the right wing playing the whole 80 minutes. Wade was selected for the second game against Argentina the following week but withdrew from the team when he was called up to join the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour to Australia. He, to date, never won another cap.
Hanley was one of two Sale players to make their international debut in England’s final match of their 1999 Five Nations campaign along with Barrie-Jon Mather.Although Hanley scored a try, he also was handed-off by Craig Quinnell and suffered a broken arm as Wales won 32–31.
