Shaun Edwards said: “I’m looking forward to linking up with the Ospreys this week and getting down to work with the players and the coaches at the Region.
“For me it is a great opportunity to work alongside some great players, a lot of which I know from their time with Wales but also to work with players hands on who I know a lot about but haven’t been out on the training pitch with.
“The Ospreys are a region with a lot of history and pride and under Allen they are ambitious and I’m looking forward to playing my part.”
