Young selects side for Ospreys clash

8th September 2008

The first Welsh derby match of the season sees the Cardiff Blues make a number of changes to the side that drew with Magners League Champions Leinster on Saturday.

Speaking ahead of the match David Young said “The Blues v Ospreys is obviously a big game in Wales, so it’s a pity it’s shoved in the middle of the week. We’ve only really had one day preparation for it which isn’t ideal. We’ve had to juggle teams as going from a Saturday game to a Tuesday match, the preparation is practically non existent,” said Young
“They have the same coaches who were there last year with Lyn, so we’re expecting very much more of the same. Maybe they will make little changes here and there but we know enough about their players and they know enough about us.”
“I think both teams have a lot of skilful players so I have no doubt really that it will be a quality game. The Liberty Stadium is a great stadium to play in and I think the Ospreys are going to be up there at the end of the season so I know its going to be a big test for us.”
