After guiding his side to PRO12 semi-final victory over Munster with an impressive personal performance that saw him score 25 points, Dan Biggar was very quick to pass on the praise to his colleagues who he says have made his job '"very easy".
On a memorable night at the Liberty Stadium, the Ospreys booked their place in the final against either Leinster or Glasgow in two weeks time, while on a personal note, young fly-half Biggar took his tally for the season past 300 points while also becoming the first Osprey to ever reach 1,000 points.
When asked by the media post-match about his performance, and his fine recent form, Biggar modestly deflected the praise onto his colleagues.
“When your pack is going forward and your centres are going well then it makes your job as a 10 very easy” said the 22-year old.
“I’m pleased with the way I played and the way I kicked but there’s always room for improvement. I didn’t think I started the game particularly well, it just went away from the plan a little bit which I’ll probably get pulled up on. There are always things to improve on and hopefully it’ll come right for the final.
“Getting to one thousand points is a nice little milestone but I did an interview last week where I said as long as we win the semi and win the final I wouldn’t care if I didn’t score a point. It’s very nice to pass that, but the main thing is for us to keep winning and at the moment, we’re doing okay. From 1 to 23 out there it was a superb effort.
“After an early setback I felt we were pretty much in control although Munster had some large periods of possession which we defended very well at. There were a couple of needless penalties that we gave away, but in terms of what we were looking for, what we set out to do, I think it was up there with as good a team performance as we’ve produced. But it all comes down to the same thing; we don’t win anything tonight. It’s a stepping stone, something we can build on, work on over the next couple of weeks. We have to make sure we knuckle down and don’t start thinking we’ve won anything.
“It’s a great place to come into work, I’m enjoying coming in every day, but as Steve has said, you don’t win anything by winning semi-finals. The bottom line is we can enjoy tonight but the final is the one you get judged on.“
