Reigning Magners League Champions the Ospreys will not have chance to defend their title in this year’s Grand Final after defeat to Munster in the semi-finals but captain Alun Wyn Jones believes in spite of defeat they need to take some positives from the season.

“We are proud of what we’ve done in terms of being the only Welsh team to qualify again for the play-offs,” he said.

“We finished with the highest points for, the highest tries scored and the most bonus points. So we’ve obviously done a few things right along the way this season.

“But we couldn’t finish things off as we wanted to.

“We’ve got to take this on the chin and learn from it.

“We wanted to defend our Magners title and we didn’t do that, so were are disappointed and hurting.

“But, in the cold light of day, we’ve got to another semi-final. It didn’t come off for us, but we can’t lose sight of that achievement.”
