Former Ireland International Takes Interim Charge Of Ospreys Following Tandy Sacking

Interim boss.

Former Ireland international Allen Clarke, will take temporary control of the Ospreys following Steve Tandy’s departure from the Welsh region earlier this week. 

Clarke joined Ospreys as forwards coach before the start of the season after leaving the same role with his native Ulster. He’s now been promoted to the top job, while Ospreys seek out a “world class” replacement. Clarke also had a stint with the IRFU high performance manager.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Andrew Millward, Managing Director, Ospreys Rugby, confirmed:

“Allen has agreed to take up the reins as interim Head Coach while the search for a permanent replacement is ongoing. 

“He is vastly experienced, at both club/regional level and the international game, and will provide leadership as the team pursues its goals for the remainder of the season. I have no doubt that he will have the full support of everybody at the Ospreys.”
