Neath-Swansea Ospreys have continued their summer player purge by releasing five more squad players.

Sale Sharks announced on Tuesday they had signed back Elvis Seveali'i and number eight Nathan Bonner-Evans.

But Adrian Durston, Paul Mackey, Dave Tiueti, Matthew Brayley and Luke Tait have also gone from the Welsh region.

Tait is tipped to join Bonner-Evans and Seveali'i at Sale, who have also signed Wales centre Mark Taylor from the Llanelli Scarlets.

Durston is rumoured to interest two London clubs, while Mackey and Brayley have taken up semi-professional contracts with Swansea RFC.

Ospreys manager Derwyn Jones said: "It is always difficult to let quality players go.

"But we must ensure our squad has a balance of senior players, current internationals, squad players and up-and-coming youngsters.

"We will maintain a core of the successful squad from this season whilst adding quality young players from the semi-pro clubs in the region, mixed with a few experienced heads from outside the region.

"We are grateful to these players for the contribution they have given to the Ospreys.

"They have each brought something to the squad and we wish them well in their future careers."
