Young Ospreys Certainly Back To Winning Ways

After a losing streak of four matches the Young Ospreys return to winning ways with two wins in two days.

On Tuesdy the under 20's beat the Dragons in a closely fought encounter, however, last night (Wednesday) the under 18's returned to top form with a seven try scoring spree against the Scarlets.

Unfortunately for the Scarlets they lost flanker David Zangouras at the kick off as he bravely dived in at a rolling ball and then within five minutes they fell behind as centre Ashley Beck scored the first of his two tries. Beck's fellow centre Kristian Phillips also grabbed a brace of tries as did No 8 Rory Pitman. But the most popular try of the night for the Ospreys was scored by scrum half Anthony Buselli, who was making his starting debut in the Reebok Championships.

Also making an imopressive debut on the night was Tight Head Prop Ryan Thomas; Thomas was identified while playing for the Afan Nedd District Youth team and has only been a part of the squad for 3 weeks.

In fairness to the Scarlets they certainly wanted to make a game of it and scored two quality tries through 2nd Row Iwan Davies and wing Mathew Lemon. For the Young Ospreys outside half Daniel Biggar kicked 3 penalties and 5 conversions, while Scarlets outside half Daniel Etteridge kicked 2 penalties and a drop goal, and his replacement Daniel Newton also kicked a conversion. Final score 54 points to 21 to the Young Ospreys and more importantly a big boost to morale within the camp.
