Ospreys announce signing of Toby Fricker

The Ospreys are pleased to announce the signing of winger, Toby Fricker.

Fricker, has spent several seasons at the Bristol Bears. During his time at the club he made 32 appearances and scored nine domestic tries, with three in Europe.

The Welsh-qualified flyer was named as the Welsh Premiership newcomer of the year in 2018, during his time with Ebbw Vale. He has also represented Wales Sevens and started for the Barbarians in their game against Samoa back in August.

Fricker is qualified to play for Wales through his father who is from Builth Wells.

Speaking on the move, Fricker said:

“It’s great to be playing my rugby in Wales again. My last spell went really well so I’m happy to be back here, especially for the Ospreys.

“I learnt a lot during my time in Bristol and I’m looking forward to representing the Ospreys badge in the BKT URC and Challenge Cup this year.”

Head Coach for the Ospreys, Toby Booth, said:

“With Toby, we know that we’ve signed an abrasive winger that isn’t afraid to use his physical prowess. He’s a player that knows where the try line is, and that can only be a good thing for us.

“He’s put his hand up in some crucial moments for Bristol and we’re hoping he can do that for us this season.”
