Parry signs for Ospreys
January 25, 2014
Sam Parry has agreed a deal to move from Newport Gwent Dragons to regional rivals Ospreys next year.
The uncapped hooker, who is in Warren Gatland's Six Nations squad, has signed a four-year deal with the Liberty Stadium outfit, ending a career-long affiliation with the Dragons.
"I'm very excited to be joining the Ospreys from next season. They're a quality team who challenge at the top four of the RaboDirect every year so I'm really looking forward to this opportunity and the challenges that come with being an Ospreys player," said Parry.
"I feel this is the right place for me to continue improving and develop as a young rugby player, working day in, day out with top quality coaches and players.
"My long term ambitions as a player are to be involved in an Ospreys team that will continue to challenge for success and silverware year on year and, also, to hopefully make the step up to the next level and become a Welsh international."
