Ospreys vs Ulster Rugby: Stat Attack

This week, the Ospreys host Ulster in the Origin Round of the BKT URC. What better time to look at the numbers behind the fixture.

The Ospreys have alternated between wins and losses in their last eight BKT URC home matches against Ulster, winning four and losing four in that period.

The boys have won three of their last four BKT URC games, despite not leading at half-time in their last two.

Ulster have been in some close games in their recent BKT URC fixtures, winning both by a point. They are yet to win three games in a row season.

The Irish outfit have won 19 of their last 21 BKT URC games against Welsh opposition, with both of the losses coming in away games against the Ospreys.

Only Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh have had higher tackle success rates than Ulster in the league this season, while the Ospreys have made more turnover-winning tackles per game than any other team.

Keiran Williams and Reuben Morgan-Williams are tied with four tries apiece as the Ospreys’ leading scorers in the BKT URC this season. Jacob Stockdale and Tom Stewart are also tied as Ulster’s leading scorers with six.
