Young warns against one-match mentality

14th March 2004

Blues' coach David Young has warned against regarding the forthcoming fixture against the Ospreys as the decisive match for Heineken Cup qualification next season.

Speaking after the Blues 0-6 home defeat against the Scarlets, Young said:

"Obviously it's a setback to lose this game but we salvaged a bonus point so we are now just behind the Ospreys in the Celtic League. But there are six matches to go for all the regions and one match is not going to decide our - or anyone else's - fate. The situation changes week-by-week. The Warriors are also now in the equation. We have to play them and, for that matter, the Dragons. We remain focused and are in no way down-heartened after losing to the Scarlets, merely frustrated that we could have won this match four times over."
