Post Ospreys Fatigued
Well we now know why the Ospreys are on a losing streak!

Head coach Steve Tandy says Ospreys need "an attitude shift" ahead of next Saturday's game against Pro12 play-off rivals Ulster.With some of the boys there may be an element of a little bit of fatigue in and around some of the young boys."

Attitude should have shifted after losing to Treviso.
Also they are supposed to be professionals and have a large squad like the other teams in the pro 12.

Excuses like this do Tandy no good!

I think it is vitamin deficiency.

They are short of vitamin AWJ and DB.

They are also especially short of wings and props - Arhip, Hassler, Dirksen and Walker are all out for the season, and for now Fia, McCusker and Ben John are also injured.

They are short of attitude and skill. Webb may have played his way off the lions tour yesterday.

Well he was indeed especially dire. I increasingly think that both he and Cawdor are poor imitations of Mike Phillips - show-offs and competitors who like to be the centre of attention and sometimes forget the basics. By contrast, Lloyd Williams may lack their attitude and charisma, but he is more straightforward and reliable (at least when the forwards around him are playing well).

Davies was also poor yesterday and always takes too long to get the ball away from the breakdown.

If you need to ask that, you must be denser than I thought...

It was a joke, as in fact both were disappointing.

I dont think either AWJ or desperate Dan would have let them get away with that lack of commitment though

Let's not downplay the Blues yesterday. They did well.

Don't think ospreys got the selection right... mujati offers little and Baldwin is going backwards. Smith looks tired. The wingers levels went up considerably when James, otten and jones came on

I think Howells and Giles are good players but ospreys needed to bring them into it more. Matevesi is crap and why fonotia was on the bench is anyone's guess

Osprey's lost it pretty much everywhere, the worrying thing is that almost that whole pack is either Welsh squad or dual contract holders, and they were completely bested by let's face it a decent workman like team.

If some of these guys are the national teams future, then Wales have huge problems. Not only was Smith anonymous in the loose, he had so little impact in the scrums that Falisee (sp) was able to canter around the park like a colt, and as for the back row, it would be generous to say that Tipuric. Baker and King came second to the blues, they were pathetic.

Webb I have always thought over-rated and on that showing he was the fourth best scrum half on the field.

It was interesting how much better the Ospreys were once Paul James and Habberfield came on

This is one of the reasons I will not be disappointed if we have very few on the Lions tour.

Yeah, in fact it was noticeable how both West Wales teams improved somewhat with the second-half substitutions.
