Ospreys U18 Development Squad update

The Development Squad coaching team are pleased to announce the next stage towards finalising their squad for the forthcoming season. The players named below have been selected to continue training with the squad in the interim and the team aim to finalise squad on the or around the 16th of September.

Selection has been a tough process and includes players released by the regional team and those players who will train with both squads.

We would like to assure all those not selected at this stage that the door is not closed and we will monitor player’s performance throughout the season at both College and Club games and would like to thank you all for your commitment to date.

It is important that the players understand that we are attempting to cover off all levels of rugby in the community via Talent ID Scouts. The Ospreys / WRU will get out to watch youth team games throughout the year so they can call players in if they are performing so it is imperative that you continue to work hard with your College/Club teams. If you require more information about this process contact your local player development officer.

The Team will provide feedback individually to all players not making it through this stage of the process and Team Manager Mark Morgan will be in contact in due course to invite you to attend a feedback session.
