Grounded: Alun Wyn Jones

Wales and Lions star Alun Wyn Jones insists the Ospreys will not be underestimating the Dragons this Sunday.

The two sides will face off as part of Judgement Day at the Millennium Stadium, with the Blues also facing the Scarlets.

The Ospreys remain mathematically in contention for the top four but need to be perfect over the next few weeks, and hope that Ulster can do them a favour by defeating the Scarlets on Friday.

Focusing though on the matter at hand, the Dragons arrive at this fixture having leaked 45 points against Treviso last weekend.

Jones therefore doesn't the Ospreys to be the team they bounce back against, picking out Richie Rees and Hallam Amos as two main threats.

"The Dragons have had a couple of tough run outs so we don't want to slip up and give them the scalp they want to get their season back on track," Jones told the South Wales Argus.

"We are aware of what a proud side they are and early on in the season they pushed a lot of big sides and got a couple of scalps, so we are not going to take them lightly.

"They have a few dangerous individuals, Richie Rees has been marshalling them well while they have young guys like Hallam Amos really putting their hands up."
