The Ospreys combined age grade side secured a convincing victory over their regional rivals last night at St Helens
The Ospreys Combined Under 16’s side took to the field atSwansea RFC yesterday in the second match of their three games against the age grade sides of the other regions. After last week’s narrow 7 – 5 loss against the Dragons, the young Ospreys were looking to get back on track, and they did so with a convincing five try win.
With not even 10 minutes played at St Helens the Ospreys Under 16’s were already showing their dominance as Dewi Cross raced over to grab their first try of the evening. Luke Scully just off target with his conversion attempt.
Despite being a man down after a yellow card for Rhys Laugharne, the Ospreys continued to dominate in attack and with just under 30 minutes on the clock Will Baraclough powered over the try line. Scully successful this time with his kick.
There was just time before the break for the Ospreys Under 16’s to get try number three under their belts, scrum half Sam Cambriani with the score. With no conversion of the game went to half time:

The young Ospreys came out of the clocks even quicker in the second half. With just over a minute played Dewi Cross was on the move again and over the try line for his second. Scully again adding the extras.
The Blues suddenly found their feet in the game towards the end of the first quarter, two converted tries coming in very quick succession.
However it wasn’t enough for the visitors and the Ospreys Under 16’s got the final say in the game as replacement Harry Morgan slipped through the Blues defence for try number 5.
