TEAM NEWS LATEST – ACADEMY ALLOCATION 2016/17

Confirmation has been received that centre Keiran Williams, outside-half Luke Price, scrum-half Reuben Morgan-Williams and flanker Josh Cole will continue their rugby education with Neath next season.

Tonmawr back-rower Charlie Davies has also been allocated by the Ospreys Academy and team manager Martyn Morris said, “We are delighted that these young lads – all hailing from the Neath locality – will be with us again.

“They have made excellent progress in the highly competitive Premiership environment and Keiran and Reuben’s rapid advance has been recognised by Wales Under-20’s and they are off to the World Cup next month.”

“Luke and Josh have had more than their share of injury problems and we look forward to seeing them fully restored and raring to go next year.”

“Charlie has been capped by Wales Under-18’s and is rated by Paul Williams, who coaches him at Neath College, as definitely one for the future.”

We are also very interested in a group of young players from outside the Academy group. There is an established pathway for them at Neath and several will be training with us this summer too. We don’t want to miss anyone with the talent and drive to succeed.”
