Ospreys head coach Allen Clarke is planning a rebuilding job at the region after admitting that in failing to make the European Champions Cup they let down their fans. In a frank assessment of how far they have fallen, the Ulsterman - who suffered at the hands of his former province on Sunday - has spoken of “putting the pieces together” after a fractured and often fractious campaign.
