Its been a season to remember, reaching the playoffs in both the URC and Challenge Cup, winning an unprecedented four out of five games against South African opposition and finishing as the top Welsh team in the URC with several games to spare.

Its been a tough job shortlisting the player of the season OSCA nominees but we’ve narrowed it down to eleven – but for injuries limiting game time in black, white, charcoal, pink and green, there might have been some more extending this list even further.  Sorry if your favourite didn’t make the cut but with a 15 year age range and positions from 1 to 15 represented, there’s someone for everyone here to vote for!

Defying odds of 50 to 1 according to the URC (what do they know), the Ospreys marched into the URC playoffs before our season eventually came to an end against reigning champions Munster.  The team bounced back from a tough game in Dublin against Leinster to take a full 10 points from the remaining Welsh derbies, first at home to Dragons and then wrapping up the regular URC season with an epic Judgement Day performance against Cardiff.   

We’ve shortlisted six players for the May-June vote.

Judgement Day returns for 2024 on Saturday 1 June with the double header event featuring the BKT United Rugby Championship Round 18 matches between Scarlets v Dragons (KO: 15:00) and Cardiff v Ospreys (KO: 17:15).

Please keep an eye out for updates for the latest information for supporters.

Travel

Due to the multitude of travel options to get to Cardiff, the OSC won’t be organising travel to Cardiff for this event but we can advise on how supporters can make their way from the City Centre to the Cardiff City Stadium.

Shuttle buses

Anyone with a ticket for Judgement Day can take the free shuttle bus service that will be in operation.  Buses will depart regularly from  the bus stops on Wood Street.  Buses will run from 15@15 and will run continuously  until 20:15

By foot

Its a 30 minute walk from the City Centre to the Stadium if you’re up for a walk to burn off some calories

Taxi

Taxis are accessible from all over the city.   We’ve looked at the Veezu App for prices of taxis  – from the BBC Studios on Wood St to the ground, it says there is a fixed fare of £7.60. (I’ve no idea what Veezu is myself but I’ve had this information from one of our Cardiff based committee members so it’s reliable information!)

Buses

The No 95 bus (Cardiff city centre-Llandough Hospital-Barry) runs from Cardiff City Centre (Wood Street  JA, opposite the new BBC Studios on the same side of the road as the UK Government Offices).  the buses run every 30 minutes.  Its a 10 minute journey and get off at the Leckwith Retail Park stop (if you don’t know where the cardiff City Stadium is already!)

The buses return every 30 minutes post match up until 22:09

Bus costs are:
Adult day return – £4.70 (day to go)
Child day return – £3.10 (day to go)

Train

There are trains running from Cardiff Central Station to Ninian Park station every 30 minutes on matchday but these can be unreliable.  Beware that this will still leave you with a 10 minute walk to the ground. 


Tickets

Tickets need to be purchased directly from the stadium.  Supporters can purchase tickets here: https://www.cardiffcitystadiumevents.co.uk/

PLEASE KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR POTENTIAL CHANGES TO YOUR SEATS! 

If you have purchased seats in the Level 5 section of the Ninian Stand, you will have been moved to a lower section of the same stand “to enhance the fan experience”.  There have been emails sent out from Cardiff City Stadium Events to let those people know who may be impacted by this change.

 


Meet up points

We are aware that the Ospreys won’t be laying on a Brewfest type setup as per Gloucester and as the stadium is some distance form the city centre, at the moment we don’t have any plans for meetup points as we’ve done for previous Judgement Day events.

 

‘Played 4, Won 2’ sounds rather average but the performances have been far from it.  April saw our Challenge Cup run end against Gloucester after our first ever European playoff win against Sale Sharks.  The team then returned to URC action and made the significant journey to South Africa to take on the Stormers and the Bulls.  Our South African results this season have yielded an amazing four wins from five and the one blot in the copy book was against 4th placed Bulls to complete April’s fixture list.

We’ve shortlisted five players for the April vote (and on this very rare occasion, there are no front rowers represented!)
