A spokesperson for Ospreys Rugby commented:
"We were contacted by ERC last month, as, we believe, were a number of other clubs, to clarify certain issues around the registration of players in this season's European competitions, in our case regarding Ricky Januarie. We are co-operating fully with ERC, providing them with all the relevant paperwork relating to Ricky's transfer and registration, and believe that all our actions comply implicitly with tournament regulations.
"We would reiterate that this is not solely an Ospreys issue, it is our understanding that ERC have also made contact with a number of other clubs regards the issue of registration.
"There will be no further comment on this issue from Ospreys Rugby."
