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.

Premiership Rugby Cup (Tue, 24 Sep 2019)

Rugby’s heavyweights ensure World Cup will garner Japan only fleeting prestige (Tue, 03 Sep 2019)

Once the World Cup is presented in Yokohama on 2 November and the bunting is swept up the hosts, like the other tier-two and -three nations making up the numbers, will slip back into relative obscurity for the next four years. Some will emerge briefly for … Continue reading Rugby’s heavyweights ensure World Cup will garner Japan only fleeting prestige
