He made his Ospreys debut off the bench towards the end of the 2019/20 season, now youngster Josh Thomas is focusing on the challenge ahead this weekend.
“It was a really proud moment for me making my debut for my home region back in August, it’s something I’ve worked really hard at for a long time. It wasn’t the best start for my parents to watch but I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot off the back of that experience.”
Head Coach, Toby Booth, has spoken about his intention of giving homegrown talent a chance, with Thomas being Booth’s first youngster handed the opportunity to represent the region. The Pontarddulais product made his first start at outside half for the region last weekend out in Parma against Zebre.
“Obviously it wasn’t the result we all wanted to get out there over in Italy. The boys were all gutted at the end. We didn’t have the best of starts but we dug in deep and fought until the very end only to come up short against a good Zebre side. Away from the result, it was a proud day to make my first start and have the chance to wear that number 10 jersey for the Ospreys.”
