Eyasses look to tame the Dragons

The Ospreys U16's will be looking to bounce back with a win against the Dragons at Tredegar RFC tomorrow evening.


Following opening day defeat against the Scarlets, the Eyasses will go looking for their first win and will hope to set the record straight with a victory over the young men of Gwent.

Several changes have been made following the loss to the Scarlets at Llandarcy as the Eyasses look to unearth combinations and partnerships that have yet to be discovered.

Having only been together as a squad since the summer, the youngsters will hope to establish a platform on which to build on, starting with a win against the Dragons tomorrow.

Owen Watkin will lead out the Eyasses for the first time from the centre and he will hope he can link up with his threatening backs, such as last week’s try scorer, Regan Grace, to cause havoc amongst the Dragons defence.
