The Ospreys may have won tonight but they are still not fulfilling their potential and dominating a game as their strong squad ought to. However there was one pleasing thread through the whole game and that was the return on Ryan Jones.

He definitely deserved his man of the match award not only for his individual performance but also for his captaincy.

It amazes me that he has bounced back in this way having had such a miserable time of injury and selection problems earlier in the year.

He is the only class act at Number 8 in Wales and needs to tell both his regional and national coaching team he plays 8 and nothing else. Then hopefully we will see him return to the force he was 3 or 4 years ago. Well done Ryan.
