Ospreys attend Mumbles RFC Sports Evening

Elite Performance Director, Andrew Hore, and injured prop Duncan Jones joined guests from the Swans at a special Sports Evening hosted by Mumbles RFC.

The Ospreys duo took part in a special Q & A session, along with Swansea City and Welsh footballing legend Alan Curtis, and the club's current vice captain, Alan Tate.

Martin Rodwell of Mumbles RFC said: "This was the first time the club have put on an event of this nature and it proved to be a huge success. The panel entered into the spirit of the night and answered a whole range of questions with sincerity and in many cases a big slice of humour which proved a big hit with the audience. Special thanks to Andrew Hore who came straight to the club having just flown in from New Zealand. Thanks also to Duncan Jones who despite being injured and on crutches came along to support the club. Having the two Alan’s from the Swans at the event gave the evening a nice contrast when comparing rugby and football in many of the questions that were asked and made the evening even more enjoyable."

Andrew Hore added: "It was a pleasure to be able to take part in this event, which appeared to be a very popular one. As an organisation, we are always keen to get out into the rugby clubs that make up the Ospreylian community and events like this are a good way for us to do that, enabling us to build strong relationships that benefit the host club. In fact, this is a strong element of the Club and Player Engagement programme that we are putting together, where we are encouraging local clubs to take advantage of the opportunity to host these kinds of events, which add real value to the club/region relationship."
