Since making his debut for his hometown Region, Alun Wyn has become the Ospreys’ leading appearance holder, featuring 238 times for the region to date.
Commenting on the announcement, Allen Clarke, Ospreys Head Coach, said:
“Today's announcement is fantastic news for us as a club and all Ospreys and Wales supporters. Alun Wyn is a man I have the upmost respect for; he is greatly admired not just because of what he’s achieved and what he represents as a local boy playing for his home Region and Country but importantly because of the ambition and level of performance he consistently displays.
“He's a tremendous individual and a winner with a deep hunger for the Ospreys to be successful on and off the field. Alun Wyn has spent his entire career with the Ospreys and I expect him to continue his legacy as a player and well beyond his playing days.”
