The Ospreys are proud to announce flanker Harri Deaves has signed his first professional contract with the regional rugby franchise.
Deaves, 20, has signed a two-year deal to stay at the Swansea.com Stadium.
The openside flanker made a try-scoring appearance on his debut away to Sale Sharks in the Heineken Champions Cup, this season.
That followed his eye-catching performances for Wales in the U20s Six Nations campaign.
A product of the Player Pathway Programme, Deaves’ all-action displays have seen him promoted to the senior squad from the Ospreys Academy.
Deaves has made six appearances and scored one try for the Ospreys and was voted Pathway Player of the Year for 2021/22.
Harri Deaves, Ospreys and Wales U20s flanker, said:
“To get my first Ospreys deal is just massive to me and to have played a few games already just means a lot to me.
“I just want to play more after having a taste of it and my debut couldn’t have gone much better for myself. It was just a massive achievement for me to play in a game like that and having all my friends and family make the trip was really special too.
“Toby has really backed me, shown he trusts me and has confidence in me to do a job for the team.
“He has shown your age doesn’t matter and he will give you an opportunity if you impress enough in training.
“I am not taking anything for granted and I know I have to take every opportunity that comes my way.”
