Ospreys scrum-half Rhys Webb believes his side can still improve, despite Sunday's 62-13 win over Edinburgh in Swansea.

The Welsh region scored nine tries in their victory at the Liberty Stadium – a result which maintained their 100 per cent winning record and elvated them to the top of the table.

Webb led the way with a brace of tries while the Ospreys' other five-pointers were scored by Jonathan Spratt, Dan Baker, Dan Biggar, Hanno Dirksen, Tom Grabham, Tyler Aldron and Jeff Hassler.

And despite that superb performance, Webb feels the Ospreys still have plenty to work on if they want to become serious title contenders.

“We could have been more clinical on a couple of occasions, our exit strategies were sloppy and we conceded a silly try,” he said.

“It will be a much tougher test against Munster [on Saturday]. There is no reason why we can't go there and get the win but we need to be clinical.”

Webb's opened the Ospreys' account with a spectacular try in which he gathered the ball on the halfway line before beating several defenders to score under the posts.

He then scored his second five-pointer 10 minutes later but it's his first effort which he will remember for years to come.

“It's the best try I have scored,” added Webb.

“But, hopefully, there's more to come.

“It was a great start for me. I just thought I should pin my ears back and go.

“I did not have any support, so there was just one way I was going and that was over the try line.”
