Edinburgh vs Ospreys by Sebmc

Edinburgh
VS
Ospreys
Edinburgh ranks eighth in the championship. This team is in good shape now because they remain on two consecutive wins including one in Connacht and the other at home against Glasgow. They recruited two players from New Zealand (Te Rure and Blake) who arrived at the club at the end of last year. Hugh Blake, who has Scottish origins was even called by Vern Cotter in national team before being released this week. Te Rure plays as number 10 and will start tonight. Recently, they have also taken the rugby league Scottish international Damien Hoyland. He will start on the wing. Several players are retained selection including first rows Dickinson and Ross Ford. The match will be played in the former lair of Edinburgh (Myreside) because Murrayfield is unavailable due to the Scotland match vs Wales.

 

The Ospreys are first championship with 44 points. The problem is that most of their players are on international duties. So for duplicates, they are very weakened. Indeed, for this meeting, the Ospreys have 13 players on international duties + 10 injured players. They must therefore include some youngsters to complete the team. Notable absences, the hal-backs pair Dan Biggar - Rhys Webb who is the heart of the Welsh team, the lock and captain Alun Wyn Jones, part of the world's best players in his position or flanker Justin Tipuric.

 

The Ospreys will suffer in scrum. Edinburgh bench also seems stronger. I expect a win of Edinburgh by at least 3 points.
