Good to see Biggar fit ... maybe a watershed in terms of both teams.

Interesting.

Let's hope there is a little more cohesion between the backs and the forwards.
Individually, they are all good players. Coaching appears to be the biggest problem in the Ospreys camp.
Tandy must surely be running on empty, a poor result in South Africa could well spell the end of the line for him and his coaching staff.

What I have seen as missing has been a little energy by the players more than anything else. The drills may be OK but if the player is 2 seconds slow you can forget them

Would like to see the Ospreys on sa soil tomorrow night. Heard a lot about them and some names in there!
Cheetahs - Would have loved Rosko Speckman rather than Raymond Ruhle on the wing. Speckie is a game breaker. Solid midfield combo in William Hall-Smith and Francois Venter the captain. Very good forward pack! Hugo at lock and Paul Schoeman the fetcher. Keep a look out for Ox Nche from the bench!

Tandy is going nowhere. He serves his purpose - he's cheap - and fits in perfectly well with the disinterested attitude of the owners. Ospreys could lose every game this season and nothing will change.

Do you mean 'disinterested' (as in neutral and objective) or 'uninterested' (as in indifferent and unconcerned)?

BBF, unfortunately, the Ospreys are not what they were three years ago. So you may be a little disappointed.
The way Ospreys are playing now, it will be a miracle if they beat Cheetahs tomorrow night. Although I am hoping that they do. :D

Very surprised at the Leinster result last week. As Johnyboy just said, the conditions may be the biggest thing to overcome. When did the Os leave for SA.
