Ospreys Assistant Coach, Jonathan Humphreys, commented:

"We have within our squad's players who are highly regarded by us but who are simply not getting enough rugby at the moment. This fixture was a chance not to be missed, as it puts these players up against the Wales Under-20's team in what should be a great contest. A good example of the benefit of this match is in the front row, where Ed Shervington, Cai Griffiths and Craig Mitchell have not had significant game time as a unit, but they have the potential to form the Ospreys front row of the future. During the Six Nations the squad selected on Monday will form the majority of the Ospreys team and looking ahead this it is an invaluable chance for all involved to get competitive game time."
