Your guide to the Singha 7s Final squad

Here's the lowdown on who’ll be in action for the Ospreys at the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s final in Coventry on Sunday.

Ospreys Sevens Squad, Singha Premiership Sevens, Sunday 7th August 2016


Joseph Scrivens

Bridgend Ravens outside half, whose form for the Ravens saw him feature in both the Singha Premiership 7s and British & Irish Cup preparations last year.

The 21-year old is a traditional running 10, who offers an attacking threat to go with his distribution skills. Scored two tries in this year’s Welsh leg.


Steff Andrews

A prolific try scorer in recent season with Aberavon, 24-year old Andrews is an experienced sevens player having previously represented Leicester Tigers in this competition before featuring for the Ospreys two years ago.

Has speed and agility and the ability to beat men with his footwork, a consistent performer at Premiership level. Touched down twice at the Arms Park last month.


Matthew Aubrey

An intelligent scrum-half with good game management and decision making skills.

Capped by Wales at age-grade level, the Ospreys development player made his bow in the Championship last season, playing 12 times for Swansea.


Chris Knight

An experienced 7s campaigner and a regular member of the Welsh squad on the circuit since his debut in the penultimate round of the 2012/13 HSBC World Series where he caught the eye with a stunning breakaway try versus England in the 3rd/4th place play-off.

Renowned for his finishing prowess he has developed into an excellent 7s defender.


Jonathan Phillips

Aberavon full back with an eye for the line, who has scored 18 tries in 65 appearances for the Wizards.

His speed, agility and footwork gives him the ability to beat players one v one, which has allowed him to shine on the invitational 7s circuit.


Tom O’Flaherty 

An exciting young winger who made a huge impression two years ago in his first season of Principality Premiership with Bridgend Ravens, having scored four tries in four games for Cardiff RFC the previous year. During 2014/15 he scored 18 tries in 25 games for Bridgend, including the winning touchdown in the Swalec Cup Final win over Pontypridd at the Millennium Stadium.

He spent last season in France, combining university studies and a rugby contract with Montpellier, and the former Blackheath winger returned to Bridgend this summer.


Morgan Williams

A 20-year old full-back going into his third Premiership Sevens with the Ospreys having moved south from North Wales where he was part of the RGC academy in the summer of 2014. 

A Wales age-grade cap, Morgan has featured for the national sevens team on the 2016 World Series, and was part of the GB squad in their final Olympic warm-up in Poland last month.


David Evans

A powerful, strong running centre, he has featured regularly with Aberavon in the Principality Premiership over the last two seasons, stepping up from Waunarlwydd RFC in the Swalec League. 

Having caught the eye of the Ospreys coaches, he earned the opportunity to pull on a regional shirt for the first time in the Welsh leg of the Singha 7s.


Joe Gage

20-year old Gage is a versatile player who can cover a number of positions in the backs line. A regular in the Principality Premiership with Aberavon over the last two seasons, Gage also featured for the Ospreys Premiership Select throughout the 2015/16 B&I Cup.

Played in the last two Six Nations championships for Wales U20, and also scored tries against New Zealand and Scotland in last month’s World Rugby U20 Championship in Manchester.


Mike Sully

A regular in the back row for Swansea RFC over the last three seasons, 24-year old Sully has scored 16 tries in 47 games for the All Whites.

Was penciled in to be involved in last season’s B&I Cup only for injury to rule him out. With many of the qualities you would look for in a modern openside, 7s gives him the chance to lay a marker down for further involvement with the region throughout this season.


Alex Dunham

Played for Swansea RFC last season after impressing with Swansea University. A physically gifted player, Alex has all the physical attributes to play at a regional level and, having spent time training with the Ospreys will be looking to take full advantage of this opportunity to show he can perform consistently to a high standard in the senior game.


Andrew Claypole

A prolific try scorer for Swansea in recent seasons, down 26 times in 56 appearances having represented the Ospreys at age-grade level.

The 24-year old winger will add speed and dynamism to the squad this weekend.
