Ospreys Head Coach, Allen Clarke, said: 

We are back at home following two weeks on the road and we are looking forward to playing in front of our own supporters again.

Theres a sense of excitement going into a new tournament after six rounds of the Guinness PRO14, and the challenge of playing a quality team from France provides unfamiliar opposition to test ourselves against. We set ourselves a benchmark of performance that we aspire to not just achieve, but surpass, each week and this is an opportunity to see how we are progressing as a team.

Its extremely pleasing to see Keelan involved again. His professionalism has been exceptional and he has worked hard to get back to where he is. Ive no doubt that supporters will be equally delighted to see his name on the team sheet this weekend.
