Ospreys made a huge announcement today with the Welsh club revealing they have secured the services of Wales international Gareth Anscombe for next season.
Wales’ first choice ten and MOTM in last month’s Grand Slam decider against Ireland at the Principality Stadium, Anscombe is one of the hottest properties around right now and the Ospreys have beaten off considerable competition to bring him to the Liberty Stadium for next season.
Speaking about the move west from his current region, Cardiff Blues, Anscombe said:
“I’m delighted to have secured my future to play professional rugby in Wales and to be joining the Ospreys, I am very happy to finally be able to put pen to paper during what’s been an unsettling time and commit to staying in Wales.
“I know a lot of the boys from my time with the Wales team and they can’t speak highly enough of the spirit and ambition within the Region which really excites me. I’ve been impressed with the vision and the long term goals of the coaches and Region as a whole and I would like to thank them for supporting my dream to continue playing pro rugby in Wales and, if I am playing well enough, to play for my country.”
And while signing Anscombe is a cracking move from Ospreys, their announcement video isn’t one of their finer moments. In a bizarre film upload to their social media we see a man (supposed to be Anscombe) getting a “black” blood transfusion while binning his “blue” blood.
Very bizarre indeed.
