Paul Watkin, Head Coach, commented on the game:

“I’m very happy with the result last Wednesday against the Dragons, particularly with a good performance against the Scarlets the week before which didn’t give the result we wanted. 

“During last Wednesday’s game against the Dragons, we had a 10-minute period between 20-30 minutes into the first half where we scored 21 points, and I was a little disappointed we couldn’t carry that form into the second half.

“We are now looking forward to the Blues game on Wednesday night and the message is that the 10-minute period witnessed during last week’s game is to be repeated, but this time for a longer period of the game.”

The Ospreys West U16s also look to continue last week’s success when they travel to Ystrad Mynach tomorrow evening to face the Dragons Black U16, K.O. 7.15pm.

Speaking ahead of the game, Head Coach Tom Snelgrove said:

“This week sees a different challenge for us all. After the disappointing result against the Blues, we asked the players to work on a few key areas of the game, and they did just that, and we have seen that with improvements made in many areas, which was more pleasing than the result. 

“The big question mark now is can we keep improving? This is a challenge not only for the players but for us as coaching team as well. We fully appreciate the Dragons are going to be a very tough challenge on their own patch with them putting together a very good second half last week. The last games of the blocks are generally always the toughest as teams have settled down and players are beginning to enjoy the experience.”
