Myler signs on for one more year with the Ospreys

The Ospreys are delighted to announce fly-half Stephen Myler has extended his stay for another season with the regional rugby franchise.

Myler, who signed for the Ospreys in 2020, has signed a one-year contract extension.

He was Head coach Toby Booth’s first player signing and has agreed a deal to stay for a third season at the Swansea.com Stadium.

His new contract will mark his 20th year and his 21st season as a professional rugby player.

Myler made his Superleague debut in 2003 and switched to rugby union in 2006, playing both a league and union season in one year.

His achievement of being a professional rugby player for two decades means he joins an elite band of players, including Brad Thorn, Peter Stringer and Donncha O’Callaghan.

The fly-half has been widely recognised for his performances during his time with the Ospreys in Wales and has played 26 games, kicked 39 conversions and 48 penalties.

Myler has already accumulated 222 points for the Ospreys and has taken his career tally to 3,131 points.

He won the Gilbert Golden Boot award in his first season with the Ospreys for his 86.05 percent success rate from the kicking tee during the 2020/21 campaign.

Stephen Myler, Ospreys and England fly half, said:

“This was an easy decision because I am happy here and feel like I am making a contribution.  I’m still healthy and motivated.

“Being able to make a contribution, have an impact and have the trust of the coaches has been important to me.

I’m looking forward to continuing my part in the Ospreys’ journey, building on what we’ve put in place, and seeing where this group can go.”
