"The boys just want to go out and prove

After being in the unique position of sharing the Man of the Match award with his half-back partner Dan Biggar, scrum-half Rhys Webb acknowledged that his fine run of form over the last two months, and the Ospreys unbeaten run in that period, is down to simple hard work.

Speaking to the assembled press at the Liberty Stadium following the 37-6 win over Glasgow on Saturday night, 22-year old Webb said:

Weve been together the last six weeks now, and weve put together a good run of victories over some top opposition. I feel that weve just worked so hard together, inside the camp and outside on the pitch. I think weve all come together nicely, and to be honest, we know that we are going to have to find the right balance now when the internationals come back in. Theres going to be some disappointed boys obviously, but whats most important if we find the right balance to go on and win the Magners League.

Theres been real belief, the boys just want to go out and prove themselves on the big stage, and weve done that. Weve got some time off now, then its Edinburgh in three weeks, and hopefully, we can stick together and get another win up there. We are building a young team and I think theres a lot to come from us.

I didnt get much game time for a long period, that was a lot to do with injury, and then when I came back, we had Mike and Jamie here, two great scrum halves. This time around I just feel Ive matured as a person. Ive worked on my weaknesses, concentrated on analysis, and I feel that Ive taken my chance. Its probably about being more professional really, looking at other scrum halves to see what they do, working hard with the coaches, working hard with the forwards, and just improving ever week. Hopefully, I can keep the number nine shirt against Edinburgh.
