Warriors Head Coach Rory Duncan spoke to the media ahead of Saturday’s European Challenge Cup match against Ospreys at Sixways (kick-off 3pm).

Here’s what Rory had to say:

On the Stade Francais win
A great way to start the European campaign. Delighted with the efforts of the players and to start with five points away from home.
Impressed with the attitude of the players and how they managed the game.
A number of players were hungry for their opportunity and we now have some good selection headaches.
A special game for all involved. There was a great feeling in the camp which has carried through to this week.

On Ospreys
We know what task lies ahead of us this week. It would be great to back up last week’s performance.
Players have worked hard this week and are in the right frame of mind.
Expecting Ospreys to put out a strong side. They play with a bit of tempo, they have great line speed and they are a territorial team side.
They have done better in the Pro-14 so far this season than they did last season so it’s going to be a tough game.

All the players will be in this week. Squad to be finalised later in the week but a lot of the players who played in Paris will get another opportunity.
There is competition for positions which should bring out the best in the players.

Ashley Beck: He broke a leg in Paris. It’s extremely unfortunate and we wish him all the best.
Ashley is seeing a specialist this week to establish the extent of his injury.

Ben Te’o: Has trained this week and at this moment in time he is available for selection on Saturday.

Alafoti Faosiliva: Recovering from a calf injury but close to fitness.

Josh Adams’ Wales selection
Delighted for Josh. He works extremely hard and, from a coach’s perspective, he’s a nice guy to work with.

Kai Owen’s debut in Paris
Kai has one of the best work ethics in the team and he trained hard in pre-season.
It was a great opportunity for him in Paris. He held his position in the scrum against some fair-sized props and got the penalty in the last scrum.
He’s progressed in last four months and is a player for the future.
