Dragons urged to build on Ospreys win
Jared Rosser says Dragons must use their win over Ospreys as inspiration when they go to Scarlets in the PRO14 on Saturday.
Dragons are struggling in PRO14 Conference B but got a much-needed 23-22 win over Ospreys and now go to the Parc y Scarlets in upbeat mood.
Rosser knows it will be tough against Wayne Pivac's side but hopes to further inflict more damage on their rivals after they were hammered 34-5 by Cardiff Blues at the weekend.
"It’s a massive test ahead," he said on the Dragons' website. "We were on the wrong end of the scoreboard last season, so we know how much of a task it is going to be, but we can take a lot of confidence from the Ospreys game.
"We’re in a better place as a team than last season, we are tight as a group and all on the same page in terms of defence."
He added: "We’re away from home and they are coming off a defeat, so they will be fired up for it. We know how hard it is going to be.
"Derby games are like no other. You’ve got to bring belief and aggression."
