Toby Booth, Ospreys Head coach, said:

“There are no airs or graces about last Friday, it was a disappointing result and the nature of it. What is great is that we have had an influx of Welsh internationals that care about each other and the region.

“They have come in and brought some buoyancy to the group and I cannot speak highly enough of what the international boys have done, on and off the pitch, this week.

“We know we need to put our best foot forward against the Stormers to set ourselves for a strong finish to the season.”
