Ospreys look very stagnant.

I like Ben John at 13 and expect him to make a big impact.
More especially if he is psychic and can read Hook. :D

I thought it wasn't televised? Anyway, according to Wales Online the HT score is 15-3. Keelan Giles scored a try two minutes into the match, but it became very stop-start after that.

FT 22-13. Needless to say it was much closer than expected, but the question is whether this was more the Ospreys playing badly, Zebre playing well, or a combination of both?

Yeah. If the Ospreys continue like this, then I can see them lose their away matches this season to the Dragons and at least one of the Italian teams. Even so, they have the (mildly welcome) distinction of being the only Welsh region to remain unbeaten at home against Italian teams. (Remember 17-41? Oh and the Blues gifted Zebre their first ever win...)

Aye, only one Lion on show - very poor fare from their stars watching on.

Ospreys need a good coach otherwise they are going to go the way of Cardiff.
TBQH I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the Dragons as our number 2 Wales region 'ere long.
Dragons are a young team with a good thinking coach. Try contrasting that with the Blues and Ospreys set ups.
I know a lot of punters are pre-judging the Dragons but from the WRU take over on the first of July we are looking at a different set of circumstances. A new experienced coach, a Rodney Parade that is not going to be water logged the whole season so not having to play 50% of their league matches on a lousy pitch. Things will change there, for sure.
I see no change in Ospreys or Blues to justify any confidence and it's only one game into the season.
By the end of this season this is how I see the final placings come time for the knock outs. Scarlets, Ospreys, Dragons and trailing the Blues.
