Challenge Cup opposition confirmed

The Ospreys will face French and English opposition in the 2018/19 European Rugby Challenge Cup.

The draw took place in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Wednesday afternoon and saw the Ospreys placed in Pool 2, alongside Pau (8th in the 2016/17 T14 table), Worcester Warriors (11th in Aviva Premiership) and Stade Francais (12th in T14).

It will be the first time that the Ospreys have met Pau while games against Worcester Warriors have previously been confined to the Anglo-Welsh Cup. Stade Francais are familiar foes, with the two teams having previously met five times in European competition, most famously (and most recently) in the 2016/17 Challenge Cup quarter-final at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, the Parisians breaking Ospreys hearts in a game that ended 21-25.

Admission to all three home Challenge Cup matches is included in a 2018/19 Ospreys season membership, available now from just £195 from this link.
