Head Coach, Allen Clarke, said:

While Saturdays game wont have any bearing on how we finish the season, Judgment Day is always a big occasion for Welsh rugby and its something to look forward to. 

Cardiff will have their own focus, with a Challenge Cup final to prepare for, but we will worry about ourselves going into the game and what we can do. This is a first for me, in terms of Judgment Day, and I know that the result last year hurt the group. Ive done my research into the history of the fixture and Im aware that the Ospreys have had the upper hand prior to that game. Everybody will want to ensure it stays that way.

Weve got three weeks off after this weekend before our European play-off so we can focus on this game and everything that comes with a derby game.
