Ospreys Coach, Richard Fussell, said: 

It was a great effort against Gloucester last weekend, the youngsters acquitted themselves really well against strong, experienced opposition and made a really positive impression.

Bath will provide another stern test for this group. They can get a home semi-final with the right result on Friday night so we are expecting them to go for it and we will have to prepare for that.

This competition has always been great for us in terms of giving opportunities for talented young players to test themselves at a higher level and thats been the case again this season. Looking at this line-up, players like Dewi, Reuben, Will, James, Alex, Josh, Tiann and Joe, not to mention the likes of Callum Carson and Morgan Morris who did well last weekend, are putting their hands up and showing what they can do.

Well expect the same attitude again on Friday, regardless of what Bath team they are up against."
