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.

Will Rugby Union trash its finest qualities in 2019? (Tue, 05 Feb 2019)
If ever there was a year for rugby union to show the best side of itself, it is 2019. A first Rugby World Cup to be staged in Asia, fresh financial investment offering club rugby a chance to take a significant next step, a Six Nations championship requiring only a sprinkle of on-field brilliance to … Continue reading Will Rugby Union trash its finest qualities in 2019?

Rugby Union in limbo over Brexit as well (Wed, 02 Jan 2019)
The dog’s Brexit the government is making of leaving the European Union has put the organizers of the Premiership, Pro14 and the European Champions Cup in a state of nervous uncertainty with the prospect of no deal in place by the 29 March departure date growing. That falls on the quarter-final weekend in the Champions … Continue reading Rugby Union in limbo over Brexit as well

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter
