Jones expects tight semi-final

Date published: May 21 2015

Munster full-back Felix Jones is expecting a tight clash with an impressive Ospreys outfit in their PRO12 semi-final at Thomond Park on Saturday.

The Welsh region came out on top in each of the teams' last two meetings this season and will be gunning for three in a row in Limerick this weekend.

And Jones expects an epic game between the pair, with the Ospreys boasting such talent as Alun-Wyn Jones, Rhys Webb and Dan Biggar in their line-up.

"There are an impressive side with talent right across the pitch including some world class Welsh internationals," he revealed to Munster's official website.

"They're a proven side who have already beaten us twice this season and are themselves unlucky not to have a home semi-final, it could very easily have been us travelling over there this weekend. Things will be very tight again at Thomond Park."

As mentioned, Steve Tandy's side has got the better of Munster of late, with their last visit to Limerick seeing them win 19-14, a loss Jones found difficult to take.

"To ship a defeat so early in the season was a tough one to take but that is testament to how good a side Ospreys are," he added. 

"There were no complaints that day, they turned up and were the deserved victors. We have grown since then and we get another chance at them this weekend so it's important that we turn up and put in the performance that we're capable of."
