Both sides have made some exciting additions to their squads since then. Cardiff Rugby have welcomed the dynamic lock Matthew Screech, formerly of Dragons, into their pack while former Scarlet and Welsh international Rhys Priestland returned to Wales having impressed over at Bath.
Ospreys have a few more new names to their squad list. Exeter and front row duo Tomas Francis and Elvis Taione add some power and experience to the pack, while exciting young Wales U20 prop Ben Warren joins from Cardiff.
In the back row, up and coming openside flanker Jac Morgan comes back across the Loughor bridge to return to his home region. Big lock Jack Regan comes into the pack too, having spent a spell out with New Zealand’s super rugby franchise, the Highlanders. Also from the Highlanders, comes the talented utility back Michael Collins, while big winger Alex Cuthbert joins the ranks in the back three and young centre Osian Knott joins from rivals the Scarlets.
