The Ospreys come into Saturday’s derby in a rich vein of form having won an epic tussle against the Cardiff Blues at Judgement Day.

And North has urged his team-mates to take the opportunity to play in the best club competition in Europe with both hands.

“It’s an unexpected way to finish the season, but for us it’s a game we’re looking forward to,” he said.

“We’re in a good place momentum-wise so to finish with a home game with a Champions Cup place on the line is a brilliant place to finish the season. The Champions Cup is the crème de la crème of European rugby.

“I think everyone that plays rugby wants to play at the highest level. From a regional point of view I think we’ve shown glimpses of some great rugby and how we’re going to develop that moving forward.

“But everything comes down to 80 minutes at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.”

Despite the stakes being so high Wales and British & Irish Lions star North is confident it will be a free-flowing affair at the Liberty Stadium.

“From our point of view we know what’s at stake so we will go for it,” he said.

“Hopefully the weather will be good because both sides want to play rugby.

“The Scarlets will obviously want to end the season on a high especially with it being Wayne Pivac’s last game so they’ll want to go out with a bang.

“We are going to stick with what we know, but certainly we will have a go. The season as a whole has been positive.

“We’ve had our ups and downs, but we’ve come out on top when we’ve needed to in the big games that count.”
