Ospreys welcome league leaders Edinburgh to the Swansea.com Stadium this weekend, so here’s a quick look at our opposition to see what we can expect from the Scottish capital side.
HEAD TO HEAD
The two sides have faced off on 33 occasions and it’s the Ospreys who have enjoyed the most wins so far, with 19 wins, 13 losses, and one draw.
Edinburgh’s attack is potent. They sit 2nd overall in the league, just behind Leinster, with 205 points scored this season, of which 140 have come via their 28 tries. They’ve also made more clean breaks, 63, than any other side in the URC. However, they will be up against the top-rated defending side in the competition in the Ospreys.
Ospreys also top the leader board in the kicking stats; they have successfully kicked more penalties than any other team with 27 successful penalty goals. In fact, the team that comes nearest to that is the Cell C Sharks with 14 while Edinburgh have slotted 11 penalties so far this season.
