Saints U18s to face Ospreys tomorrow

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Saints' Academy coaches have named their under-18 side to face Ospreys in the final match of the Wales tour before they return to England to end their preseason games next week.

In the penultimate game of the 2017/18 preseason, Saints' Under-18s make the trip to Brewery field to face the Ospreys with just one addition to the side that drew with Scarlets on Monday, though reduce the number of replacements by three.

U18 Team Manager, Simon Sinclair said that though the side struggled with a few injuries during the Scarlets game, tomorrow's clash will provide a good development opportunity for the wider squad.

"With Ollie Sliegtholme going back to Northampton home to play for Saints against Nottingham tonight and the three injuries we picked up on Monday all coming to U18 players, tomorrow is a great opportunity for the U17s boys' development.

"The game will also be a fantastic opportunity for 16-year-old Emmanuel Iyogun who will lead the team against the Ospreys."
