Hungry: Lewis Jones

Cardiff Blues scrum-half Lewis Jones is determined to build on their victory over Ulster when they return to Pro12 action against Edinburgh on Friday.

The Blues travel to Meggetland Stadium on the back of the 28-23 win against the Ravenhill side, with Jones hoping to follow it up in the run-in.

"The Ulster game was a great result and reflected where we had been after the defeat to Ospreys," he revealed to Cardiff Blues' official website.

"We had trained really hard and righted the wrongs with that performance, particularly in the first half. Second half we dropped off a little bit, but overall it was a good performance.

"The attitude was right against Ulster. We showed want, good work rate and it paid off.

"We want to play for pride and show we can play rugby. We haven't had the season we wanted, but coming to the end we have lots to play for because we want to finish strongly.

"Edinburgh have come off a few good results and are a strong team," he added.

"It is going to be tough up there playing in a new ground away from Edinburgh.

"It will be a big atmosphere. But we are used to a close environment at the Arms Park where the fans feel on top of you so I don't think it will make too much of a difference.

"They have some big carriers, like Dave Denton, and strong players who have been with them all season and not away on international duty. They have experience too so are a good all-round team who will push us hard."
