Ospreys Head Coach Toby Booth, said: “Benetton are a very, very good team now, they are Rainbow Cup winners and have won seven of their last eight games they have played. They are a very competitive side and are the type of challenge we need after a disappointing performance last week.
We need to approach the game with a better mentality than we did last weekend, when we appeared to have an emotional hangover after two Welsh derbies. We need the right mindset, first and foremost, and that is the overriding thing and everything starts from there for us. If we want to be the team we want to be, we need to build pressure and treasure the ball better than we did in our last game.”
