The Ospreys continue their double assault on the European Rugby Challenge Cup and the Guinness PRO12 with back-to-back home games against Grenoble and the Scarlets coming up.
After last Friday’s resounding 59-7 win at the Stade des Alpes cemented the Ospreys’ place at the top of Challenge Cup Pool 2, with three bonus point wins from three games leaving them in pole position at the halfway stage.
The team ran in nine tries as they secured a second successive win on French soil, only the third in the region’s history. Young wingers Keelan Giles and Dafydd Howells ran in two tries each, while there were also a first in Ospreys colours for Kieron Fonotia and scores from Sam Parry, Josh Matavesi and Dan Biggar.
Alun Wyn Jones also touched down for a landmark score, his 21st try, making him the highest scoring forward for the region.
Now, Grenoble visit the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon for an untelevised clash which kicks off at 3pm as the Ospreys look to continue their unblemished record.
Tickets for this game are on sale now, priced from £20 (adults) and £5 (U16), at the Liberty Stadium Ticket Office and online at www.ospreysrugby.com/buytickets.
Following the Grenoble game, the next challenge for the Ospreys will be the eagerly anticipated Christmas derby against the Scarlets on Tuesday 27th December, once again a 3.00pm kick-off.
With the Ospreys sitting in third spot in the Guinness PRO12 championship table, just one point off first place, and the Scarlets one place and four points behind, it is building up to be one of the biggest derby clashes ever.
The biggest crowd of the season is already guaranteed with 11,500 tickets snapped up and demand set to soar in the build-up to the festive season.
The Ospreys go into the game with seven wins from their 10 PRO12 games to date this season, all seven coming with a four try bonus point win.
For their part, the visitors have been on an impressive run, climbing the table into the play-off sports with seven straight victories having lost their opening three fixtures.
With the PRO12 tighter than ever this season every game matters so this Christmas cracker is set to be an explosive one!

The Ospreys have been THE team to watch this season, currently sitting pretty at the top of their European Rugby Challenge Cup and Anglo-Welsh Cup pools, as well as leading the way among the Welsh sides in the Guinness PRO12 and holding an end of season play-off spot as it stands.
