Do you believe that we didn’t want Jac Morgan, or offer him a contract too?

The Ospreys can announce the signing of exciting young centre Osian Knott on a two-year deal.

Knott, 21, will join the Liberty Stadium-based regional rugby franchise from the Scarlets at the end of the season.

A hard running and tough tackling centre, who can play on the wing, Knott’s signing will bolster the Ospreys squad. 

The Wales U18s and U20s centre scored two tries against Ireland during the U20s Six Nations campaign in 2020.

Osian Knott, Wales U20s centre, said:

“The Ospreys are a fantastic club, they have lots of quality players and someone like centre Owen Watkin is someone I know I can learn from. 

“Toby explained what the Ospreys want to be and want to achieve, and it’s something I really want to be a part of and, hopefully, can add to.

“I have set myself some goals and I believe the Ospreys is the best place where I can achieve them.  Toby has shown he has faith in youngsters but there is some real quality at centre and it’s going to be really good for me because it will push my standards to be higher.

“I am not expecting it to be easy at the Ospreys, nothing in life is easy, and hopefully it will push me to be a better player, which is what I want.”

“For a young player to be in the same environment with role models, like Alun Wyn Jones and Justin Tipuric, is just exciting, and to be able to learn of them is something any young player would want to do.”

Osian Knott 
“TOBY EXPLAINED WHAT THE OSPREYS WANT TO BE AND WANT TO ACHIEVE, AND IT’S SOMETHING I REALLY WANT TO BE A PART OF AND, HOPEFULLY, CAN ADD TO."

Toby Booth, Ospreys Head Coach, said:

“Osian is a Wales U20s international and it is part of the Ospreys strategy to recruit young players to increase the depth and quality of our squad.  

“He has played centre and wing, so he gives us some versatility, and he has a real physical presence. That is an attribute we are looking for.”


He obviously doesn’t see players such as Ken and a Foxy as role models and thinks he can learn more from Owen Watkin than from Foxy. Which of the two was the player of the series in the last Lions Tour?

Just a little misinformed on how he came to you, hope he plays to his potential regardless.

This. You always see this in media releases when a player moves. Club going places, love the style of rugby, blah, blah.

Different situations I believe. Jac was offered.

My point is that he was released and we have benefitted. Or do you think he has ‘chosen’ Ospreys. Trimming the squad from 65 down to around 50 would see some casualties. We’ve benefitted.

Do we know for certain we didn't offer him a contract?
I don’t think many would know for certain. However you have to trim your squad significantly, he’s in a renewal/or not situation, there’s a few good youngsters coming through (one in particular who could be very good) and the coach will always have his subjective opinion of him. In pro sport these things happen and we’ve benefitted.

The first part of your comment certainly fits pretty well with Booth’s comments about the signing: “.... part of the Ospreys strategy to recruit young players....”
Who knows what good will come of it? Perhaps they’ll be looking to merge with the Blues or us in a year or two.
