The Young Ospreys completed their pre season match programme with victory over the Blues South at Pencoed College on Thursday 30th August.
Last seasons wing Eli Walker started the ball rolling when he expertly finished off a well worked team try so that the Young Ospreys trailed by 6 points to 5 at the interval. However, after the break there was only one side in it and wing Bryan Barlow scored 2 tries and centre Dean Howell one. The final scoreline of 20 points to 6 was fully justified. Despite a good pre-season match programme the Young Osprey squad know that they face a difficult challenge when they go to Tredegar RFC and the pursuit of league points against the Dragons. Head Coach Alex Evans is pleased to be able to call upon the experience of Walker and last seasons scrum half Ryan Jones who also captains the side. Unfortunately a couple of the squad were unavailable because of injury and a special "get well soon" message goes to prop David Saines who is in hospital after getting injured in a domestic accident at the weekend. Young Osprey team to play Dragons at Tredegar RFC on Wednesday 5th September is: 15. Sam Hughes14. Bowdy Davies13. Tom Prydie12. Dean Howell11. Eli Walker10. Matthew Morgan9. Ryan Jones (Capt)1.
