Changing landscape “excites” Ospreys

Roger Blyth says potential changes to the rugby landscape in Wales are something that excites everybody at the Region.

Following much speculation and comment relating to ongoing changes to the way the regional game operates in conjunction with the WRU, the Ospreys chairman insists that activity going on behind the scenes to reshape the business will stand it in good stead for the future.

“It may be summer but it’s a very busy period, crucial for the future of the business” said Blyth.

“As an organisation, we are well aware of the challenges that lie ahead but we also look at it as a real opportunity to reshape our governance structure to ensure we are in the best position to take full advantage of any new agreement between the Union and Regions.

“There are wide ranging discussions currently ongoing across multiple fronts, with a number of different individuals and organisations, identifying ways that we can make our structure more suited to the changing landscape. This will lead to us identifying expertise that can assist us with our long-term aims of putting Ospreys Rugby back at the forefront of the game.

“This excites everybody involved. It’s the nature of professional sport that at times of change there is rumour and speculation but we have to embrace this opportunity to ensure we are in the best shape to move forward confidently as a business. As we progress some of these projects we will keep supporters updated ahead of what promises to be an exciting season on and off the field.”
