The Ospreys are excited to announce that centre Tiaan Thomas Wheeler has signed a new two-year contract to extend his stay at the Liberty Stadium.
Thomas-Wheeler, 21, is one of a number of talented homegrown players who have begun to establish themselves at the regional franchise.
He made his Ospreys debut at 18 against Gloucester in 2018 and is now a respected member of the first team squad. Thomas-Wheeler has made 42 appearances and scored two tries so far for the team.
The Neath-born three-quarter has a reputation of being a gifted footballer and a diligent professional and scored the winning try for the Wales U20s side that beat New Zealand in 2019.
Tiaan Thomas-Wheeler, Ospreys and Wales U20s centre, said:
“The Ospreys are my home region and playing for them means a lot to me and I am just really excited about what the future holds here.
“Something really good is building here and it feels like we are at the start of something really special. I just want to be a part of it.
“Toby has made a commitment to playing youngsters and, as a younger player, having a coach do that is really exciting.
“He has shown he has faith in the younger players and that is massive for all of us and it gives you real confidence to go out and express yourself on the field.
“All of us are learning here, it’s a good environment to be in and I am really enjoying what is happening and we all have a voice in this team.
“I just want to be the best version of myself and I just want to get better and better as a player and to keep learning. My aim it to be the best player I can be.”
