  1. It's a bit of a joke really:

    They cant play the game because everyone is on holidays?
     
  4. Seems to be the case. That's the Ospreys problem, not the Magners League.

    A walkover, 4 points and 22-0 victory to Ulster is the proper solution. Let's see if Ospreys can pull together a team then......

    Well they're missing two props for the 6N, and Cai Griffiths got banned yesterday for a month, and another guy (can't remember who, but one of the ones on twitter) is out with a knee injury for the rest of the season). So that's 4 gone
     
  6. Each club participating in the Heineken Cup is required to register 10 front row players - I assume the Magners League is the same. If four players are unavailable, one of whom is only unavailable for ill discipline, the Ospreys should still have enough cover. The Ospreys should be obliged to fulfil the fixture or risk forfeiting the game in my opinion.

    Seriously. Are Ospreys trying to get themselves punished?

    Neath v Swansea, 19:15

    Doesn't help either.... :/
     
  9. Lads the Ospreys are a disgrace.

    They a regions so should have the pick of maybe 20 front row players.
    Like I'm sure special dispensation like to register Neath or Swansea players would be better than postponing a game.

    Is that Prestwick?
     
  11. The Ospreys front-row forwards:

    Adam Jones- With Wales
    Paul James- With Wales
    Huw Bennet- With Wales
    Cai Griffsh- Suspended
    Richard Hibbard- Injured
    Duncan Jones- Injured
    Marc Breeze- Injured
    Ross Davis- Injured

    Ryan Bevvington- Fit
    Ed Servington- Fit
    Craig Mitchell- Fit

    That's 11, as Davis wasn't in the HEC squad. There is actually one fit tighthead, one fit loosehead and one fit hooker, but there's no cover for the bench.

    What up with all players in Academy's or with Neath or Swansea. They would have got dispensation to register extra front-row forwards for fixture and any player given that chance will be chomping at the bit to impress.

    Yeah, it's Neath v Swansea that night so you would'be thought it'd be easier to rearrange that fixture than the ML one.
    However i doubt Ospreys will be pushing for that, as they'd rather have a full strength side, rather than one with untested players in

    Thats wrong though, the rest of Clubs are just as badly hit and get on with it.
