Ospreys West victorious in first Under 16's derby

The Ospreys West Under 16's Development team beat their counterparts from the East in the first of the two inter-regional derbies this week.


Llandarcy was the venue for an entertaining and fast flowing game as the Ospreys Under 16's development sides from the East and West faced each other in their regional age grade league game last night.

In driving rain the crowd were treated to an exciting spectacle as the two teams battled it out for inter-regional bragging rights. The West were the dominant side for the majority of the game, with 10 minutes of the second half played they were leading their counterparts from the East 26 - 7.

However their rivals were not giving up that easily and as their replacements took to the field the East side came back strongly into the game. The fresh legs giving them impetus to cross the line several more times to gain another 19 points.

Two more late tries from the team from the West side of Ospreylia secured their deserved victory though as the game ended Ospreys East Under 16's Development 26 - 38 Ospreys West .

Next up for the Ospreys West Development side is a trip to Colwyn Bay on 16th February where they will  face RGC. The East Development team are in action a day later on the 17th February when they take on Scarlets West at PYS.
