Ospreys recruit scrum-half Martin Roberts from Bath

Ospreys Rugby have signed three-times-capped Wales scrum-half Martin Roberts on a two-year deal from Bath.

Roberts, 28, came through the Ospreys' academy system and made his debut for them aged 19 before joining Scarlets in 2008.

He has since played for Northampton and Bath in the Aviva Premiership and won his first Wales cap in 2008 against Canada.

"It's a new beginning and I'm looking forward to it," said Roberts.

"I've been in England for the last three years, playing for good teams.

"It's been a great experience that has definitely benefited me personally and professionally."

The Ospreys have agreed new contracts with 16 players and Roberts became their eighth pre-2014-15 signing.
