Kieran Lewis News

Scarlets props Simon Gardiner and Rhys Fawcett have joined the Ospreys on a loan deal as injury cover.

The Ospreys suffered injuries to Gareth Thomas (knee) and Gheorghe Gajion (ankle) during their Heineken Champions Cup defeat to Racing 92, on top of having three other props sidelined.

The loan deal is for the remainder of the season, although the Scarlets do have a call-back option.

Gardiner and Fawcett have linked up with the Ospreys squad ahead of their match in Paris this weekend.
