“It’s been a tough couple of months on and off the field but the boys and management have held firm and remained committed. Our last game at home for the season gives us the opportunity to show what we stand for as a team and how much we appreciate the backing of our supporters, friends and families. It’s also an opportunity for everyone to show what the Ospreys mean to them.

“The returning internationals from the magnificent Grand Slam success have given everyone an added boost and confidence. As a squad we know we’re going to have to be at our best in order to achieve our aims”
