Ospreys v Edinburgh - RaboDirect PRO12 match preview
Ospreys are without 15 players for their game against Edinburgh in the RaboDirect PRO12 on Friday night due to international duty with Wales senior and U20 squads.
Joe Bearman and Ross Jones have added a further headache to coach Steve Tandy as suspension means the pair are also both unavailable for selection for the game at the Liberty Stadium.
Tandy has named Sam Williams and Arthur Ellis on the bench for Friday's game with both hoping to make a debut, Ospreys will hope to reverse their recent form and begin to move up the table.
Edinburgh coach Michael Bradley is looking to youth, fielding no less than nine players aged 23 or under in the visitors' match-day squad.
A combination of injuries and international call-ups have handed highly-rated flanker Hamish Watson, 21, his first start for the club after seven appearances off the bench.
Dougie Fife, 22, Stuart McInally, 22 and Greig Tonks, 23, retain their increasingly ever-present places at wing, back row and full-back respectively - as well as 20-year-old Harry Leonard being rewarded with a start.
Ospreys: 15 Richard Fussell, 14 Tom Habberfield, 13 Tom Isaacs, 12 Jonathan Spratt, 11 Kahn Fotuali'I (c), 10 Matthew Morgan, 9 Rhys Webb, 1 Ryan Bevington, 2 Scott Baldwin, 3 Cai Griffiths, 4 Lloyd Peers, 5 Jonathan Thomas, 6 James King, 7 Sam Lewis, 8 Morgan Allen
Replacements 16 Matthew Dwyer, 17 Marc Thomas, 18 Dmitri Arhip, 19 Sam Williams, 20 George Stowers, 21 Arthur Ellis, 22 Ashley Beck, 23 Tom Grabham
