Afan Nedd District U16's welcome Eyasses

The Ospreys U16 side face Afan Nedd District in the final match of the Tri-game series against the three Districts in the region on Wednesday evening.


The match takes place at Abercrave RFC, kicking off at 6.30pm.

The three games have been specially arranged by the Ospreys to fill the gap during the break in the WRU Age Grade Competition, and as part of their continued quest for player identification within the region, as the matches allow them to cast their eye over players who didn’t make the Eyasses squad in a competitive environment.


The first two games went the way of the Eyasses, a 15-7 win over Swansea at Swansea Uplands RFC followed up with a 38-21 win over Bridgend in front of a large crowd at Pyle RFC last week.


The Eyasses team for the fixture has been confirmed as:


15 Owen Howe

14 James Needs

13 Martyn Davies

12 Jack Anderson

11 Sam Evans

10 Joe Thomas

9 Geraint Watkins


1 Paul Sherwood

2 Alistair Hewins

3 Tom Crowley

4 Tom Lewis

5 Adam Beard

6 Evan Williams

7 Tom Williams

8 Jordan Collier (C)




Daniel Owen, Chris Forshaw, Lewis Cox, Josh Preddy, Steve McMorran, Tom Maggs, Tom Bluck, Adam Rowlands, Scott Govan


Meanwhile, two of the colleges in Ospreylia are also in action in the Welsh Schools National U18’s League on Wednesday, with a number of Eyasses involved.


Neath College host Coleg Morgannwg at the Llandarcy Academy of Sport at 3.00pm while Bridgend College travel to Pembroke College on the back of a 19-12 defeat at home to the region’s third college, Gower College Swansea, last week.
