Friday sees the Ospreys return to the Liberty Stadium for the first time since October, Edinburgh the opposition in the Guinness PRO12 (7.35pm KO).
The Ospreys remain unbeaten at the Liberty Stadium this season with a perfect record, with four bonus point wins in four PRO12 home games and another bonus point victory in Europe.
The Ospreys will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start at the Liberty Stadium, which has seen them record bonus point wins in every outing to date, scoring 31 tries in four matches. In fact, they have picked up a try bonus point in seven successive games at the Liberty Stadium, which means there’s only one place to be this Friday night as the Ospreys look to cement their place in third spot ahead of the festive derbies – or even climb higher!
It’s going to be an action packed day on an off the field!
