The Ospreys have handed a new two-year contract to winger Eli Walker.

The deal will mean the 21-year-old, who may not play again this season due to injury, remains with the Welsh province until the summer of 2016.

Walker had been due to make his Wales debut last autumn against South Afrcia, but a hamstring problem suffered during training ruled him out.

He made his comeback in last week's RaboDirect PRO12 loss to Ulster, only to break down again after coming on as a second-half replacement at Ravenhill.

"Playing for the Ospreys was a goal that I had since I was playing schools rugby, so to have achieved that makes it special," he said.

"To be truthful, I wouldn't have liked to have had to go anywhere else, so it's great that the coaches want me here.

"The main aim for the next couple of years has to be to stay fit.

"I've had some bad luck this season and not managed as much game-time as anyone would have hoped for, but experiences like this can help to make me stronger."
