Off the field, the Ospreys are also saying farewell to Backs Coach, Gruff Rees, Skills Coach, Tom Smith, and Physiotherapist, Ed Holden.

Managing Director, Andrew Millward, said:

“On behalf of everybody at the Ospreys, I’d like to thank each one of these individuals for their service and hard work while at the region.

“In professional sport there will always be a turnover at this time of the year with people leaving. It’s important that we recognise each one of these has contributed positively to our environment during their time as an Osprey and, no doubt, will continue to do so over the coming weeks in preparation for our Champions Cup play-off in May.”
