Steve Tandy (born 16 January 1980) is a Welsh former rugby union footballer who played as an openside flanker for Neath RFC[1] and the Ospreys.[2][3]

While still a player, he took his first coaching role within the Ospreys age-grade teams, and as coach of the U16's he won the WRU Age Grade Championship.

For the 2010–11 season, Tandy combined his playing role with the Ospreys with the Head Coach role at the Bridgend RFC. He led the Ravens to the Division 1 title, with an incredible 96 points (just one defeat and one draw shy of an unbeaten season.) He then guided them into the Principality Premiership with victory over Glamorgan Wanderers 38-19 at the Cardiff Arms Park. He continued to coach Bridgend Ravens for season 2011/12, but retired from playing the game.

On 15 February 2012, Tandy succeeded Sean Holley as Head Coach of The Ospreys during a cost-cutting period. Tandy was quoted saying that he was "shocked" to be appointed to the role, but is "excited" working with the "young and experienced group". [4]
