Lock Rhys Davies finally made his competitive debut for the Ospreys after returning to his home Swansea after a stint plying his trade across the border in England.
The second row will take another step on his journey when he lines up on the Ospreys bench to face Munster in the Guinness PRO14 clash on Sunday.
For Davies, 22, the journey to finally pull on the famous Ospreys jersey has taken in the renowned Millfield School and making his professional debut with Bath.
The Wales U20s international, who stands at 6ft 6ins and weighs in at 114kg, returned home to Swansea and Wales in the summer after signing a two-year deal with the Ospreys.
“It meant a lot to finally pull on the jersey in a competitive game,” said Davies, after coming off the bench against Leinster.
“I have trained really hard so I would get an opportunity.
“It was a bit surreal too, because it would have been nice to have had the family there, but that can’t happen at the moment. It was a really good moment for me personally.
