Who Plays There

The Ospreys were founded in 2003 when Welsh rugby adopted a regional structure, as one of five teams (now four) created to represent the country in the Celtic League (now Pro 12).

The Ospreys cover an area in South Wales that includes some of the most famous names in Welsh rugby-Swansea, Neath, Aberavon, Maesteg and Bridgend, who all still compete in the Welsh national leagues.

The Ospreys ground share with football Premier League side Swansea City.        

The Ospreys won the Celtic League in 2004-05, 2006-07, 2009-10 and 2011-12

The Ospreys also tasted victory in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in 2007-08

Success hasn’t been so forthcoming in Europe, where the Ospreys have yet to make it past the Quarter-Final stage, falling on that hurdle on three occasions.

  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd?

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)
  Professional rugby union is operating on the brink, with spiralling player wages leading to smaller squads and everyone from World Rugby to Ross Moriarty being accused of greed as they look to maximise income. Sponsorship revenues continue to fall, and doubts persist over whether the next television deal will be worth the same as … Continue reading Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward

Watch Out – The Americans are coming! (Tue, 28 Nov 2017)
  A few weeks ago, Twickenham opened its doors to American Football by hosting the NFL “international series” game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Cleveland Browns. It was the fourth NFL game played in London this autumn, with the matches split between the home of English Rugby Union and Wembley. The RFU was no … Continue reading Watch Out – The Americans are coming!

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
