Kieran Hardy to join the Ospreys at the end of the season

The Ospreys are thrilled to announce that Welsh international scrum half, Kieran Hardy, will be joining the team from the Scarlets at the end of the season.

Hardy has made 21 appearances at international level and has been a standout performer for the Scarlets, making 100 appearances for the team and scoring 25 tries in the process.

Born in Carmarthen, Hardy is the cousin of Ospreys scrum half, Luke Davies. Similarly to Luke, he spent time at the Jersey Reds and credits the time he spent there as a key factor behind him being the player he is today.

Hardy is a quick-thinking half back and has the pace to match that trait, making him a constant threat in opposition territory.

Speaking on the move, Hardy said: “I’m looking forward to starting this next chapter of my career with the Ospreys. It looks like there’s been a lot of growth in the team this season, they’ve got a well-balanced blend of experienced players and some younger players coming through.

“After speaking with Toby, I was excited to see what I could bring to the team, there’s some real talent already at the scrum-half position and it’ll be great to bring my own strengths to the group.”

Head Coach, Toby Booth, said: “Kieran has an impressive skill set which we value. We are looking forward to him coming on board and keeping our squad’s momentum.

“It’s important to develop strength in depth in specialist positions. We are really pleased with current nines and added competition for places will only drive the standards up.”
