Ospreys were Gareth Delve's first professional team in Wales

Ospreys have released Wales international number eight Gareth Delve from his contract a year early.

Delve, 33, joined from NEC Green Rockets in Japan on a two-year deal in 2015.

But he made just two appearances for Ospreys, with his last - as a replacement against Treviso - in October 2015.

Cardiff-born Delve won 11 caps for Wales while playing for Bath and Gloucester.

He became the first Welshman to sign for a Super Rugby side in 2010, joining Melbourne Rebels where he became captain.
