Head Coach, Steve Tandy, said:

“We’ve reached the time of the season now where there is no margin for error. We may be in fourth place but the Scarlets are snapping at our heels so we will have to be at our absolute best for these three final games if we are going to secure a play-off place.

“It’s the final home game of the regular season on Saturday, and it’s going to be a tough test against a Treviso team that has shown time after time this season how good they are. They’ve brought something really different to the PRO12 over the last couple of seasons and are really growing, as their results this season have shown. If we are going to get the win we need then it’s crucial that we are accurate in everything we do from first whistle to last or they will make us pay.

“We’re hoping for a good crowd to really help with this final push. The support throughout the season has been fantastic and it’s helping to make the Liberty a difficult place for teams to come and get a result. We need that again on Saturday.”
