Captain Ryan Jones has vowed to set aside Wales' nightmare RBS 6 Nations campaign to carry Ospreys' bid for domestic and European glory.
Jones led Warren Gatland’s side in four of their five clashes in a disastrous campaign that saw them defeat only Italy and Scotland.
But the 29-year-old’s club side take on Newport Gwent Dragons tomorrow before embarking on an action-packed month that centres around their Heineken Cup quarter final tie with Biarritz.
And with the Ospreys sitting fifth in the Magners League, Jones admits there’s no time to lick his wounds if he's to lift any silverware in 2010.
"When you look at the fixture list over this period, the size of the task we face is clear,” said Jones.
“We've got back-to-back Welsh derbies that are bound to be physical and intense battles, then we go straight into a massive game against Biarritz in the Heineken Cup, followed by three tough games away against Irish sides in under two weeks.
"That's a difficult schedule by anyone's standards, and we realise that we need to be on top form right the way through this period if we are going to achieve what we want to.
“It will define our entire season, whether it is a success or not."
