The Ospreys are the first Welsh sports team to back a national anti-smoking campaign.

The rugby club have put their weight behind the campaign by charity ASH Wales for local sport clubs to adopt no smoking policy at their playing fields.Although most Welsh stadiums have become smoke-free zones, many grounds were children train and play have yet follow suit.

The Ospreys in the Community will work with the charity to encourage regional clubs to adopt a no smoking policy with the aim of protecting young players from being influenced to smoke.

The club will promote the initiative at a beach rugby festival in front of 600 kids.

ASH Wales say it's important that children aren't exposed to smoking at a young age.
