Huge congratulations to Scott Otten on winning his first Player of the Month OSCA, sponsored by the Gower Brewery.

Scott made a significant impact in January, including recording the Ospreys’ 100th try of the season away at the Newcasle Falcons in the European Challenge Cup.

Keep an eye out for an announcement of when Scott will be visiting the Riverside Bar post match to receive his award.

Also, and without much doubt, Justin Tipuric takes the try of the month competition (yet again), showing sublime ball skills and impressive speed that a lot of international wingers must envy.

Huge congratulations to Scott and Tips and the rest of the squad and staff for helping deliver a perfect January!

Five out of five wins across three competitions has seen the Ospreys create history in Europe with a perfect 30 points as well as rise to the top of the Pro12.  Only the peculiarities of the Anglo Welsh format has meant the Ospreys have not gone onto the semi finals of the cross border competition (or is that a biased view?)

Sun, 01 Jan 10 – 0 W Newport Gwent Dragons
Sat, 07 Jan 29 – 7 W Connacht
Sun, 15 Jan 47 – 7 W Lyon Olympique Universitaire
Sat, 21 Jan 26 – 21 W Newcastle Falcons
Sat, 28 Jan 20 – 14 W Bristol Rugby

From bog snorkelling in East Wales to plastic pitches in the frozen North to the Brewery Field and the Liberty, these are the seven top performers up for the January Player of the month vote sponsored by the Gower Brewery,  

Voting closes on Friday 10th January when we kick off against Zebre.

Tom – you only need to provide quantity if the quality isn’t there!  (We’re not really complaining).  You can watch Tom’s try in the November try highlight reel below



If November has come and gone in a blur, we can recommend a few opticians, but after a slow start, the team reached a high point with a bonus point victory away at a very frosty Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow.

Congratulations to Keelan Giles in winning his very first Player of the month award!

2015 OSCAThe youngster has taken his opportunity in Europe and the Pro12 in his stride this month, scoring five excellent tries and also proving himself in defence with some last ditch try saving tackles – resulting in Keelan being invited to train with the Welsh squad in preparation for the Autumn Internationals.

We are hoping Sam Davies will be available to collect his OSCA for winning the September vote at our next home game (Friday 2nd December).
