"I was just lucky to be in the right place"

Ashley Beck picked up his second Heineken man-of-the-match award of the season after scoring his second try double of the campaign during Friday night's win over Treviso, but the young centre was quick to divert media praise post-match onto his team-mates.

The modest 21-year old once again made a huge impression, but after picking up his award he acknowledged the efforts of his colleagues to help him bag a brace in the six try win against their Italian opponents.

“To be honest it was more of a team effort for them both” he insisted.

“I was just there to finish them off. Andrew did brilliant on the second one, and the first one was just quick ball, it was easy enough to go over the line. It was something we worked on all week, getting it to the 10 quicker and then playing off them. I was just lucky to be in the right place.

“We’ve had a lot of possession all year, it’s just how we’ve used it. Tonight we used it a lot better, we were a lot more confident on the ball. That was the big thing and I think it showed. It’ll be an exciting game out there next week (Biarritz), and we’ve got something to aim for now. We’ll just go out there and do our best again, that’s all we can do. Then we’ll see what happens elsewhere.

“I’m really enjoying being an Osprey. I’m getting a lot more confidence out there, getting to know the boys more and hopefully it’s showing. I’ve been here since I was 17, I played for Aberavon, and I’m just going out there and trying to enjoy myself.”
