Seems to be s bit of a positive buzz about ospreys at the moment... after with the selection especially Evans at full back

No pace in the backs again but a tough scrappy pack

Forwards are strong and bench in that respect even more so. The back row can be devastating.

Backs are demolished by injuries, Parra will run the show. McAllister the injury joker at 10 is weak these days, Toeava much better.

This will be Naikaitci first game after ages with injury (9 mths?).

Clerm ovious favs but this Season their results are poor and they have lost games late in play whilst leading.

Irrespective of absences they do have a habit of demolishing teams then going to sleep and letting them back in.

An Osps win is distinctly possible ?

Again, cards could be vital ....

I take Clerm by 10, home support there is viral!

An Osps win would also require points difference and potential BPs to head the group (as already described)

Ashley Beck is quite slow for a 13, wings are not the quickest either. That said we should be up for it physically.

Lots of gaps in this Clermont defence. Nice break then pass by Biggar, but again the Ospreys seem to panic when they do find a bit of space and there is a knock on.
