Johnson's Ospreys ready for lift off insists Thomas.
Flanker Jonathan Thomas insists former Wales coach Scott Johnson has finally got the Ospreys firing as he sets his sights on the Heineken Cup crown.
Johnson's troops, who face Italian side Viadana on Saturday, sit top of Pool Three after picking up two wins and a draw from their opening three games.
The Ospreys have struggled to hit the expected heights since Johnson's arrival in January, but after thrashing the Italian minnows 62-7 away from home last week, Thomas insists the region is ready for lift off.
“I don't mind admitting we have under-achieved on the attacking front in the past few seasons for the quality we have in the side,” said Thomas.
“That was the most exciting thing when Scott got the job. He is the type of coach who can bring people together and gel you as an attacking team.
“It wasn't going to happen overnight. We had some criticism early on in the season, but Scott’s philosophy and coaching style is starting to shine through now.
“The training field, as well, is a good indicator and things are really starting to gel there. It's a high-skill game. We have to keep trying to listen to Scott and move forward.”
