Ospreys hooker Scott Baldwin has signed a new long-term contract with the club ahead of the RaboDirect PRO12 season.

The 25-year-old, who made his debut for Wales during the summer tour of Japan, has put pen to paper on a deal which will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until the summer of 2017.

Baldwin joined the Ospreys in January 2009 from his hometown club Bridgend and established himself as a key member of the side last season when he made 23 appearances.

He told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased. The Ospreys have been really great to me since I came on board four years ago and I've really developed.

"Last season was a big jump forward for me, being involved regularly week in, week out, and I'm happy that everything is sorted so that I can look forward to the new season and beyond that, working with a great bunch of boys in the team and great coaching staff.

"The good thing about the Ospreys is the way they bring players through each year, not just youngsters but boys from the Premiership who haven't been part of the age-grade set-up.

"It shows that there is talent beyond the age of 20 or 21 and if you work hard then the Ospreys will give you a chance. I was lucky enough to get an opportunity and I hope I've been able to make the most of it."
