Ospreys wing Keelan Giles has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal, as the finisher commits his future to the region.

The 24-year-old has proven himself to be a dangerous player and is delighted to have re-signed with the United Rugby Championship outfit.

The flying academy product made his senior Ospreys bow in 2016 and has had 58 appearances, scoring 20 tries to date for the Welsh side.

Growing in confidence

“I grew up in the region, have supported the club since I was a youngster and I enjoy being here and feel there’s a real future here,” Giles said as he enjoys being back on the field after injury.

“You can really feel us growing as a team and you will really see that come to fruition over the next few years.

“Personally, it is just great to be back playing and training, trying to improve as a player and contribute to the team.

“The more I play, the more confidence I get. I have thoroughly enjoyed just getting back out there and doing what I do.

“The competition for places on the wing is unreal here and it really drives you on in training and in games.

“We all know we have to take every opportunity we get with both hands.”

Ospreys head coach Toby Booth said: “Keelan has shown real resilience to get back on the field and he has improved his performances week on week. His game changing ability will help our attack become stronger and more potent which is exciting to see.”
