Head Coach, Steve Tandy, said:

“Overall we can be pleased with last week against the Dragons, but despite the margin of the win we know that there is plenty of room for improvement this weekend.

“We’ve only got four games left in the regular season so each one is crucial now and it’s vital that we are on the top of our game, on and off the field. It’s a big occasion for regional rugby in Wales on Saturday, and it’s going to be great to play at the Millennium Stadium with a big Ospreys crowd behind us, but we mustn’t allow ourselves to be distracted.

“We have to be 100 per cent focused on the job, and we have to kick on from last weekend’s win to allow us to really build some momentum going into the final three games, starting with Treviso at the Liberty in two weeks. We are very proud of what we’ve achieved in this league, and to be the reigning champions, and we have to put in four champions performances if we are going to book a place in the play-offs.”

Tickets for Judgement Day will be on sale all day on Saturday from the Cardiff Blues Ticket Office, right up until kick-off.
