Steve Tandy has named his squad for the new European Rugby Champions Cup, which kicks off in just over two weeks time.
The squad limit has been raised to 41 for the first time this season, an increase of three on previous years.
The Ospreys will kick off their 2015/16 European Rugby Champions Cup campaign at the Liberty Stadium against Exeter Chiefs on Sunday 15th November (5.15pm) before travelling to face Clermont Auvergne in Round 2.
They then face Bordeaux Begles in the traditional December double-header in Rounds 3 and 4, with the first game at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday 12th December (5.15pm), before the reverse fixtures in Rounds 4 and 5 see the Ospreys hosting French giants Clermont before ending their campaign on the road, away to Exeter at Sandy Park.
