British Lions Ian Evans and Richard Hibbard set for Bath run out
BRITISH Lions Ian Evans and Richard Hibbard are in the Ospreys squad for the friendly at Bath this evening.
The duo have only just returned to training following their exertions in Australia this summer.
But Ospreys coach Steve Tandy has included the pair in a bumper squad which travels to The Rec.
Also included is Ryan Jones, who hasn't played since the Six Nations defeat of Scotland in March because of a shoulder injury.
Flanker Tom Smith will lead the Ospreys in their final game ahead of their RaboDirect Pro12 opener against Treviso next week.
Tandy said: "There's plenty to work on before we go to Treviso and Bath will definitely provide us with another tough test.
"There are a few more of the experienced boys coming into the mix and there's another opportunity for some of the younger players to stake a claim.
"It's going to be an interesting evening, and an important one in terms of our preparation for those first weeks in the Pro12."
Ospreys: R. Fussell; T. Grabham, B. John, A. Beck, E. Walker; D. Biggar, T. Tebaldi; R. Bevington, S. Baldwin, D. Arhip, S. Williams, J. King, T. Smith (capt), D. Baker, S. Lewis. Reps: M. Dwyer, R. Hibbard, D. Jones, J. Rees, I. Gough, I. Evans, R. Jones, A. Ellis, M. Allen, J. Cole, M. Morgan, J. Spratt, T. Isaacs, R. Jones.
