聯合橄欖球錦標賽。奧斯普雷斯隊將喬治-諾斯換成中鋒迎接獅子隊的訪問

最後更新於.來自橄欖球聯盟部分

喬治-諾斯從邊鋒轉為中鋒,側翼球員丹-萊迪特在本賽季首次出場,屆時奧斯普雷斯將在聯合橄欖球錦標賽中主場迎戰獅子隊。

喬-霍金斯、歐文-沃特金和加雷斯-安斯科姆不在其中。

安斯科姆和沃特金因在對陣斯卡雷特的比賽中頭部受傷而被排除在外,而霍金斯和摩根則被放入替補席,替補席上有六名前鋒和兩名後衛。

威爾士主教練韋恩-皮瓦克在2021年成功舉辦的六國賽和2022年夏季南非之行中,讓諾斯擔任中鋒。

"我們已經與韋恩就他看到的地方進行了交談,我們也就我們看到的地方進行了交談,"奧斯普雷斯隊的主教練托比-布斯說。

"對我們來說,這不一定是位置的問題。這是關於平衡,關於他周圍的東西和他能產生影響的地方。

"我們想嘗試不那麼拘泥於球衣號碼--現代橄欖球運動員需要大量的轉移性和適應性。

"我們認為喬治是一個可以在兩個位置上打球的人,他有時會在兩個位置上打球。他給了我們這種奢侈,這很好。"

奧斯普雷斯隊對後防線進行了調整,諾斯轉而與邁克爾-柯林斯組成了新的中鋒搭檔,後者在對陣斯卡雷特隊時開始擔任後衛。

納吉開始在15號位,摩根在邊鋒位置上。飛人沃爾什在上周對斯卡雷特的比賽中,在邊線上的轉換球挽救了一場平局,這是他第一次在奧斯普雷斯首發。

威爾士隊的成員Alex Cuthbert、Sam Parry和Gareth Thomas正在努力恢復健康。

後衛Andries Coetzee將代表獅子隊參加他的第100場一級比賽。

George North switches from wing to centre and flanker Dan Lydiate makes his first appearance of the season when Ospreys host Lions in the United Rugby Championship.

Joe Hawkins, Owen Watkin and Gareth Anscombe are not included.

Anscombe and Watkin are ruled out with head injuries suffered against Scarlets, while Hawkins and Morgan drop to the replacements' bench, which features six forwards and two backs.

Wales head coach Wayne Pivac has played North in the centre during the successful 2021 Six Nations tournament and the 2022 summer tour of South Africa.

"We've had a conversation with Wayne over where he sees him, and we've had a conversation over where we see him," said Ospreys head coach Toby Booth.

"For us, it's not necessarily the position. It's about balance and about what's around him and where he can have influence.

"We want to try to be less fastidious about shirt numbers - modern rugby players require a lot of transferability and adaptability.

"We see George as someone who can play in both positions and he will play in both positions at times. He gives us that luxury, which is great."

Ospreys have had a backline reshuffle with North switching to form a new centre partnership with Michael Collins, who started against Scarlets at full-back.

Nagy starts at 15 with Morgan coming in on the wing. Fly-half Walsh makes his first Ospreys start following his late touchline conversion that rescued a draw against Scarlets on his competitive debut last week.

Wales squad members Alex Cuthbert, Sam Parry and Gareth Thomas are working their way back to fitness.

Full-back Andries Coetzee will play his 100th first-class game for Lions.
