RAG U18 Preseason Training Squad - CLICK HERE FOR 2014-15 SQUAD
The Ospreys U18 squad will resume training on Friday 27th June at 7am (see preseason planner). The squad selected has been based on performance during Ospreys U16 and U18 matches this season, and gives coaches an extended training group to work with during the preseason period.
With the change in the season structure of U18 RAG competition, the season will now start in the New Year. Upon completion of preseason players will return to college, school and club competition, and final selection for the Ospreys U18 Squad will be based on performance in these matches.
All players will remain eligible for selection, regardless of preseason involvement. The door as always remains open to players who perform in the college, school and club matches.
