The true test of a team’s culture is what happens and what the reaction is in adversity. Before we travelled to Dublin, we had played three teams who were further down the road on their journey than we were and came second best.
We may not have always won, but we have always given our all and emptied the tank in the bid for success and played with real commitment and intent. Our challenge is to turn the pressure we create into points.
The job or a coach is to prepare the team and to fuel the ambition of the players to take another step along the journey we have all committed to and begun together.
The players have bought into what we want to do and they have done that consistently. All of us want to be a part of something and to believe in something and when we do that we commit hard to it.
The players have done that and they are showing that commitment, determination and pride in wearing and representing the Ospreys badge on their shirt.
The team thank you for your continued support.
