Adam Jones: Move to Blues represents new challenge

Adam Jones says his move to Cardiff Blues is about "a new challenge".

At this stage in my career I want a new environment and to really push myself.

I've been really impressed by the set-up at Blues and the desire to achieve in the coming years under the leadership of Mark Hammett. It is that ambition and potential for the future that excites me about this move.

Obviously I would like to thank everyone at the Ospreys - from the players and coaches to the wonderful supporters - who have been absolutely fantastic with me. I wish the region every success for the future.

Two Hassler tries not enough for Ospreys in Edinburgh

Two tries from Jeff Hassler were not enough for the Ospreys as they were beaten 31-25 in Edinburgh.

The visitors had an early lead after the first of Hassler's tries.

But the home side responded, as Grayson Hart crossed the line twice, with Sam Beard also adding five points to Edinburgh's tally.

The Ospreys almost managed a remarkable second half comeback, after Hassler's second try put them within three points.

The Welsh side did manage a losing bonus point however towards their push for a play-off place.

Full-time: Ospreys 75 - 7 Treviso

The Ospreys ran in 11 tries to thrash Treviso 75-7 in the PRO12 this afternoon.

The Welsh side were only 21-0 up at half-time, thanks to three tries, but ran in eight more in the second period, to punish the under-strength Italians.

Jonathan Spratt and Sam Davies got two tries each, while Ashley Beck, Rhys Webb, Aisea Natoga, Jeff Hassler, Dan Baker, Hanno Dirksen and Ryan Jones also touched down.

Dan Evans signing 'great news for the region'

Andy Lloyd, Rugby Operations Manager at the Ospreys, says Dan Evans' signing is 'great news for the region'.

We are delighted to have been able to secure the services of a talented Welsh player who has been in eye-catching form over the last two seasons.

Dan is someone who has always displayed real talent but the last couple of years, with a consistent run of games, have really seen him flourish and he is performing week in, week out at a high level. He's got a great left foot which everybody can see, but also, his physical attributes and his understanding and decision making at the back are particular assets.

Dragons full-back Evans signs for Ospreys

Wales international Dan Evans has signed a three year contract with the Ospreys and will complete his move at the end of the season.

25-year-old Evans, who won two international caps in 2009, has scored 11 tries in his 42 appearances for the Rodney Parade outfit.

This is a great opportunity for me...there is some real world-class talent in the squad so it’s a big challenge for me personally, but I can’t wait to get involved and fight for my place. I want to be a part of a successful Ospreys team.

– Dan Evans
