Ospreys Head Coach, Allen Clarke, said:

Were all really looking forward to playing at the Brewery Field. The boys love playing at the Liberty but going to Bridgend is an exciting prospect. It's a club with a great rugby history, which many of the boys have played for in their early years.

We play Glasgow next Friday at home and the boys need the time to recover before preparing for another important game. We appreciate the logistics for staff and supporters alike but it's a great opportunity to fill the ground and create a fantastic atmosphere.
