The Ospreys are delighted to announce prop Tom Botha has extended his contract to stay at the regional rugby franchise.
The South African-born tighthead prop joined the Ospreys in 2018 and has signed a new two-year deal to stay at the Swansea.com Stadium.
Botha, 31, a popular and respected member of the Ospreys squad, has played 74 games and scored one try during his four years in Wales.
He has forged a reputation as a formidable and destructive scrummager and been part of a dominant Ospreys scrum in the United Rugby Championship.
Botha had experience of Super Rugby with the Cheetahs and of French rugby before he came to Wales.
Tom Botha, Ospreys prop, said:
“I have been with the Ospreys for four years and I really like where we are going since Toby arrived here.
“We have really improved as a squad and this is just the start of the programme he has put in place here.
“The Ospreys is now my home from home and the boys have been really good to me and everybody gets along here.
“I know I have improved as a player but you can always do more and improve to be a better player.
“Having a player like Tomas Francis, a senior Wales international, has been great and kept me on my toes and pushed me to get better.
“We exchange ideas and tips all the time about our role with the team.”
Toby Booth, Ospreys Head Coach, said:
“Tom’s reputation as a powerful scrummager adds real edge to our scrum which is critical in giving us a solid platform in a key area of our game. This will help us thrive and drive consistency in our performances.”
