There have been some big characters and big players, who have worn the Ospreys number nine jersey down the years, what’s it like to train with a player of such experience like Rhys Webb?
Rhys Webb is probably one of the best scrum halves the Ospreys have had and they have had some of the best around at the Liberty. He is a top professional and for me, as someone starting out, to learn off someone like him is priceless for me. His standards are high and are ones I know I have to measure myself by. They are big boots to fill, when you think of some of the nines they have had here in the past, but that is the challenge and one I accept.
As a young scrum half, learning your trade, what’s it like having the brains trust of two experienced and successful No10’s like Brock James and Stephen Myler, to learn from?
We have some long meetings but it’s all good. Brock and Stephen have been there, done it and been around the block. Just having the opportunity to learn off them is huge. Steve has helped my game so much and my development has come on leaps and bounds, just by playing alongside Stevie. His experience is invaluable out on the field. The games are easier because he knows what he wants and communicates it so well. He is level-headed and calm and that makes a real difference. Brock is the same, he has only just retired, played for a top club in Europe, but his knowledge of the professional game is unreal.
