Ospreys and Wales fly-half Dan Biggar knows his side will have to improve aspects of their play when they visit Northampton next week.

Highlighting a need to be more physical, Biggar did stress that the Ospreys would make the trip to Franklin’s Gardens with plenty of confidence.

The Welsh region are unbeaten so far this season, the only side in Europe to still hold that record, after six wins in the Pro12 and defeating Treviso 42-7 in the Champions Cup on Sunday.

Facing the English champions on their own turf however will be the Ospreys’ biggest test of the season so far.

“We have to front up a lot more and be a lot more physical in terms of where we were at today,” said Biggar.

“We have to be a lot smarter, and we probably played a fraction too much in our own half, albeit chasing a few more tries.

“We realise how difficult a place it is going to be to play at next week, but also we should go up there with confidence. Why not?

“We are unbeaten this season at the minute. We are under no illusions that there is loads to work on, but why not go up there full of confidence and give it a good go?

“For me, it is about going up there and giving them a real good run for their money. We are fully expecting to rock up and test them as much as we possibly can.

“We know they are going to come out of the traps, and it is about how we start and trying to take a bit of sting out of the game. They are a top side with top players.”
