"We're still in the hunt"

Try-scorer Jonathan Spratt says the Ospreys are still firmly in the play-off chase after their win over the Blues at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

The 26-year old centre, who has been in eye catching form in recent weeks, capped a fine individual performance with his second try of the season on Judgement Day. Although delighted with what could be a crucial win, Spratt admitted to a feeling of disappointment at the final whistle, but insisted there was plenty to be happy about with the Ospreys current position.

“It’s a strange changing room in there” said Spratt.

“Obviously we are happy with the win but we know we left a lot out there. There are a lot of things to work on, but ultimately we are happy with the win.

“It’s always nice to play here, but to score the try as well was a great bonus for me. We’re just looking forward now to the rest of the season as we try to progress to the play-offs. We’re still in the hunt with the win, we’re still in fourth place, so it’s a big, last stretch now to the end of the season for us.

“A bonus point would have been nice, of course it would have, but from the last two games we’ve got nine points out of ten and we can’t really argue with that. We’ve got to look forward now to the end of season run-in and strive for the last four, and hopefully go even further than that.”
