Wales flyhalf Dan Biggar on Wednesday signed a three-year contract extension with Ospreys.

Wales flyhalf Dan Biggar on Wednesday signed a three-year contract extension with Ospreys.

Biggar, 23, has opted to commit himself to the south Wales outfit until 2016 despite the recent exodus of players from the region.

Mike Phillips, Gethin Jenkins, Luke Charteris, James Hook and Lee Byrne currently play in France, while Jamie Roberts and Dan Lydiate are likely to join Paris-based Racing Metro later this year.

However, Biggar has decided that his rugby future lies in Wales, providing a major boost to his club and Welsh rugby as a whole.

He was a pivotal part of Wales' Six Nations title success this season, starting all five games, including the record 30-3 victory over England when he kicked a drop-goal, penalty and conversion.

"This is an organisation that has always been very good to me and supported me, so it's great that I can recognise that by committing my future to the region," Biggar said.

"It is always nice to get things sorted and to be all done and dusted.

"Now I've signed, it means I can concentrate on the next few weeks and help the team to secure a Celtic League play-off place without any distractions."

Biggar made his Ospreys debut as an 18-year-old, and he has progressed to become the region's record points-scorer, averaging almost 10 points a game in 121 first team appearances.
