Ospreys Head Coach, Allen Clarke, said:

We were disappointed with the result last weekend but the focus this week has been good, weve seen an excellent response from the players.

Weve been able to move on quickly to prepare for the challenge of a much improved Benetton Rugby. They are a team that has started this season very positively and will represent a significant challenge. Its important that we show a different side to our game this weekend, as we want to maintain the momentum we have at the Liberty this season after two positive performances in the opening weeks.
