Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby: Stat Attack

Two celtic heavyweights, Ospreys vs Leinster has produced some great games over the years and this one is set to follow suit. 

The boys will be hoping for a repeat of the 24-19 thriller in 2021 that saw them clinch a Champions Cup spot. 

The teams have faced off 37 times in the past with Leinster having the advantage in the wins column. In those games, Leinster have won 21, Ospreys have won 13 and we’ve seen 3 draws. As a result, Leinster are also ahead on points scored (838 to 631) and tries scored (89 to 57).

Leinster have been the victors in three of the last four games in which the teams have played, but the Ospreys will be looking to emulate their 24-19 win, that saw Olly Cracknell, Owen Watkin and Josh Thomas score tries.

The Irish outfit have won seven of their last eight BKT URC away games against Welsh opposition, averaging over four tries per game during those eight matches.

Both teams have been clinical in the tackle this year, with Ospreys and Leinster being two of just four sides to have made more than 70 dominant tackles in this season’s BKT URC.
