Ospreys Under 18's prepared for Blues challenge

The Eyasses are back after their Christmas break to take on the Cardiff Blues at the Bridgend Ford Brewery Field tomorrow, kick off 7.15pm


The Ospreys Under 18's team had an impressive start to the season winning all three of their first games against current champions Llanelli as well as the Blues and the Dragons. However their return to rugby after a break for the College games didn't get off to the best start with losses to both the Dragons in the return fixture and to the visiting Australian Schools team.

Head Coach, Shaun Connor is hoping for a better restart following the Christmas break:

"After a great start to the season it was disappointing to have lost to the Dragons on the return leg. We made too many errors, weren't disciplined enough and allowed them too much of the ball especially in the early stages. However we have learnt from the game and also from the match against Australia. Although we lost that we were really pleased with the boys performance and hopefully they can take a lot of that attitude and effort into the game against the Blues".
