Video - Steve Tandy and Twitter react to record Ospreys defeat

By Ian Cameron
Steve Tandy faces the media

Fresh pressure has been heaped on Ospreys coach Steve Tandy after the troubled Welsh region shipped a record defeat at home to Glasgow in the Pro14.


They ran out loser by 47 points to 6 against an inexperienced Glasgow side in what is surely one of the most embarrassing defeats in the region’s history.

Tandy faced the media at the Liberty Stadium and it made for an excruciating nine minutes of viewing. In Tandy’s defence, he doesn’t roll out excuses. The embattled coach said he “didn’t see the result coming”.

The Ospreys have won just two of nine games this season and sit welded to the bottom of Conference A of the Pro14, one point behind Zebre.

On a side note Tandy said they would “of course” be interested in signing Scarlets centre Scott Williams, although whether or not Williams would be prepared to sign for a side that is suffering such abysmal form remains to be seen.

The reaction on Twitter to the Ospreys loss was unsurprisingly brutal, with many questioning how the current coaching ticket are still in a job.

Jean de Villiers' three word response to 'best in the world' debate

This ‘raging’ debate is only happenning in media circles and has never been a topic in Ireland (although SA media are interested). It makes the media companies money I guess. SA are RWC champions and #1 ranked team although Ireland are back within a point there. The facts point to SA. For a lot of 2021 France beat ALL their rivals and Ireland similar in 2022-2023. It is not wrong to say that on such form either can be deemed to be the current best team if they have beaten all their rivals and ranked #1. The ‘have to have won a world cup’ stipulation is nonsense. The world cup draw and scheduling has been tailored to the traditional big teams since the start. The scheduling also which sees the big teams sheltered from playing a hard pool match the week before has also been a constant. It is extraordinary that for example France have made so many finals. Ireland who were realistically only contenders in 2023 were in a Pool with two other top 5 teams and had to play one of them 7 days before a quarter final against France or New Zealand. Always going to be a coin toss. Scotland’s situation was worse. New Zealand had great chances in 1995, 1999, 2007 but they could not win a tight RWC match. The first tight match they ever won was versus France in the 2011 final, literally they lost every other tight match before that. Some of those NZ teams around that era were #1 surely?
