Williams turns sights to Ospreys

10th April 2017

Following a hard-fought Guinness PRO12 draw with Ulster, Lloyd Williams is relishing a massive Judgement Day clash with the Ospreys.

Williams played the entire 80-minutes as Wales’ Capital Region took the Irish province right to the wire in Belfast, in a game they could have won.

And the scrum-half has now turned his attention to Saturday’s showdown with the Ospreys at the Principality Stadium.

He said: “We can take a lot of positives from Ulster. There are still areas we would like to improve on - both teams spilled the ball a bit too much in each other’s 22 and that cost us in the end.

“But it’s important now that we take the positives and just tweak a few things for next week and I’m looking forward to a massive game in the stadium.”

The Blue produced some enthralling rugby at the Kingspan Stadium and scored three tries through Sam Warburton and Rey Lee-Lo.

They were unable to manufacture a match-winning moment in the closing stages but Williams was encouraged by the performance.

He added: “At times this season we’ve gone away from it but against Ulster we were on the money and a decision either way cost us the game.

“We’ve always had our intentions in attack but for one reason or another we haven’t been able to deliver on it some weeks.

“We’ve shown what we can do throughout the season in attack and I think our principles are in place to go and do that.

“What we’ve spoken a lot about is defence because our attack takes care of itself - it’s our defence that needs to improve. 

“Most teams are always trying to get their defence better, but I thought it was nice night for it (against Ulster) and hopefully the spectators enjoyed it.”
