Magners League Tournament Director David Jordan has confirmed that the 2010 champions, the Ospreys, will launch the defence of their title with a four points deduction.

The points deduction willbe applied following the 'misconduct' charge brought against the Welsh region by Celtic Rugby last season.

However, an appeal by the Ospreys against their penalty and £100,000 fine will be heard in London on Tuesday, 7 September.
