As it’s a 17:05 kick off and most people should have surfaced in time, we are looking to run a coach to Newport for our Pro12 New Years Day match against the Newport Gwent Dragons. It will be a great opportunities to blow away the cobwebs and start the year as you mean to go on – following the Ospreys!
Bus tickets will be available at the Grenoble match and will also be able to be bought online (sort of – details TBC).
Keep an eye out for prices and details of pick up points/times over the coming week or so.
We’ve been in contact with Lyon’s supporters club Les Lougdunums and arranged a meet up on Friday evening with them.
They have arranged to meet us at 9am at the Ninkasi Gerland which is near a subway stop. A brewery, bar menu, live music…..looks good so see you there!
Here’s a map:
We received this today – sounds like a great option for travelling supporters to meet up pre match in Belfast!
“Good morning, my name is Patrick Baird and I am the chairman of Malone RFC which is based a 6 minute walk from the Kingspan stadium, I am writing to invite any travelling supporters to come to Malone before or after the game on Saturday evening, we will be showing the Munster V Zebre game before the game between Ulster and the Ospreys and there will also be a couple of local games being played from 2.30pm here at Malone, we have two good sizes bars with plenty of tv screens for watching the matches, we will also have a bar food menu available, we have catered for many visiting team supporters and we were the fan zone base for Edinburgh for the Pro 12 final, we had over 500 supporters with us that day so we are well used to coping with large numbers, being a traditional rugby club ( 125 years old next season ) we enjoy great banter and sing songs to add to the atmosphere. Are bar prices are obviously at club prices and are far cheaper than the high street bars and are pints are over £1 cheaper than the bar at Kingspan. We would be delighted if any of your supporters would like to join us at Malone for a beer or two before walking over to Kingspan.
Many thanks and best of luck on Saturday evening, yours in rugby,

Firstly we would like to thank all supporters who used the OSC coach transport to Exeter last weekend. We are sure that the majority of you will agree that it was a successful trip despite the result. However we would like to take this opportunity to apologise to those supporters who travelled on Bus 1.
It has come to light that one individual appeared to be highly intoxicated and became abusive and threatening to fellow passengers and OSC representatives. We do not condone such actions and behaviour such as this will not be tolerated. Any perpetrators will be banned from future travel with the OSC. We do not want to tarnish the fantastic reputation that our supporters have.
The OSC representatives who travelled on the coaches are volunteers who give up their own time to make sure that all supporters have a smooth and enjoyable journey. They do not need to be subjected to abuse. The same can be said for fellow passengers.
We are all travelling to away games with the same sole purpose, to support the Ospreys and have a good time, and we want to this to take place in a safe and inclusive environment on all trips
