The Ospreys are pleased to announce that former Wales coach Mike Ruddock has agreed to play a key role in the region's review of its rugby operation.
Ruddock, a former Swansea coach, has been appointed on a consultancy basis for a month to run the rule over the rugby side of the business.
His role will include offering support and advice to interim Ospreys coaches Matt Sherratt and Carl Hogg for the month of December, while playing a key role in the review.
The Ospreys are already conducting a wide-ranging review of its rugby operation; looking at the coaching set-up and defining what roles are needed in the future.
"We are delighted to have Mike join us for a month," said Andrew Millward, the Ospreys Managing Director.
