If there are any seats remaining, we will also be taking bookings in the Riverside pre and post match at the next game against Treviso.

We would also like to take this opportunity to invite supporters to the Great Western near Cardiff Central Railway Station before the game. This has proved to be extremely popular in previous years.

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

Thexetere OSC will be running a day trip to Exeter for round 6 of the Champions Cup.  The price for the bus is just £20 per person (there are no discounted rates available sorry for children, OAPs, season ticket holders or ex players) – please make sure you sort out your own match tickets!  You can buy match tickets via the Ospreys website here

Book your seats pre or post match in the Riverside Bar & 2003 Lounge or via email annette@ospreyssupportersclub.com

Could we politely request that all those who are travelling on the coaches on Sunday please wait before boarding the coaches.  Your representative will make you aware of what coach you are on.
This is especially applicable to those leaving from the Liberty where the majority are boarding. We are very tight on numbers and therefore do not want confusion if you board the wrong coach.

Scarlets v OspreysPlease ensure you are there for the pick up time as we want all parties on the coach ready for the departure time.
We are on a strict time schedule and will not wait for any late parties.

The early pick up times are due to the traffic issues around PYS on this date and so need to ensure we have sufficient time to get there before the game.

 

grd_logo_unionbordeauxbeglesAs has become customary on our European travels, the OSC have arranged a pre and post match meeting place for those supporters travelling to Bordeaux.

We will be using ‘The Connemara’ as our base during our stay in France. The Connemara is an Irish pub and is only a short distance from the Ibis Hotels where many of our supporters are staying.

Supporters are more than welcome to use the venue throughout Friday, although the OSC probably won’t be in attendance until the evening.

FLAGOn Saturday, we will be meeting from around 2.00pm where it is hoped we will have hand flags to give out to supporters courtesy of the Ospreys. This should give us a visual impact in the stadium.

This is a MASSIVE game for us, and the boys need us all to be on top form. We need to back the boys vocally so we hope you’ll all be in fine voice!

OLE, OLE, OLE, OSPREYS! OSPREYS!

To everyone who is travelling to the game this Friday, we have been extended an invite by the
supporters club at Malone Rugby Football Club.

ulsterhand

Malone is the closest rugby club and bar to Ulster ground Kingspan Stadium who have in the past invited and welcomed Toulon to our club and more recently Glasgow Warriors supporters. This is a great place to socialise and more importantly give visiting fans a base whilst visiting Belfast.

Directions

Kingspan (Ravenhill to the old hands) you get the 6A metro bus (they are pink) this departs from SS Moores Sports shop in the city centre just down from City Hall. To go to Malone you can get off at the B&M bargain shop and the club is just up the road that runs adjacent to the shop (Gibson Park).
