ANDREW Bishop will become the most capped Osprey of all time on Friday night.

Bishop will make his 181st appearance for the region, moving ahead of Paul James at the top of the list.

The centre has been a mainstay of the Ospreys squad since making his debut against Borders in February 2005.

He has also won 16 caps for Wales, the last of which came against the Barbarians at the Millennium Stadium this summer.

"It's a fantastic achievement to become the most capped Osprey," he said.

"I'm extremely proud of it, particularly when you look at the quality of the players we've had here and who are at the top of the appearance list.

"When I started off as a youngster, to just get selected for the Ospreys and to pull the shirt on was something amazing and I never could have imagined that I would go on to play so many times for the region."
