We are delighted that the team enjoyed their Christmas lunch and we look forward to them visiting us again.”

Alun Wyn Jones, Ospreys captain, said: “It’s great that we can come together as a squad to enjoy Christmas lunch, and even better that we were able to do that at Blasus, supporting the students at NPTC Group. . It’s important that local youngsters are offered the chance to shine, as a region we are committed to developing young talent and giving people opportunities, in the same way as NPTC Group are.
