Ian Gough Hopes To Celebrate 50th Cap With A

Ian Gough will lead the team out on winning his 50th cap as Wales look to take the title and grab their second Grand Slam in four championship campaigns.

 Ian is one of the 14 Ospreys players named in the strapping 22 side to face France on Saturday. He has started all matches and is eager to finish the 6 Nations championship on a high. During the 6 Nations campaign he has been praised by many for his performance, with the press quoting that Ian has produced some tireless performances at the heart of the Welsh pack.

Ian popped in to see us today at the Liberty Stadium, during his rest day from Welsh team training and this is what he had to say:

"I'm looking forward to Saturday, it's going to be a massive occasion in front of a packed Millennium Stadium and a capacity filled Cardiff. Training is going well after a really intense 2 months, but now the light is at the end of the tunnel and what better way to end it all than a championship decider against a very strong French side, which lets not forget put an All Blacks side to the sword at the stadium not 6 months ago!"

The millennium stadium will be like a second home as the dust settles from the 6 Nations within a week we will be back there facing a strong Saracens side in want promises to be a great encounter in the EDF Semi Final. It will be great to get back into Ospreys colours and see how far we've come and how far we can push our silverware winning potential.

Everyone here at the Osprey wishes Ian and the rest of the Welsh team every success on Saturday and we look forward to welcoming them all back next week for what will be an important week for the Ospreys as we focus on the EDF Semi Final.
