Second row Dean Schofield believes Yorkshire Carnegie can give fans plenty to enjoy this Sunday when they kick off their British and Irish Cup campaign at Huddersfield YMCA, kick off 1.30pm.
Schofield is one of twelve changes by Bryan Redpath to the side that lost at Bedford and the forward admits the focus this week has been on getting things right after the set back at Goldington Road. He added, "We don't know too much about the Ospreys, obviously they are a great club at first team level and I have no doubt they will have some good young players coming through the ranks and some senior players looking to impress the first team coaches. We have been concentrating on our game this week and making sure everyone gives a good account of themselves come Sunday afternoon.
"We have got a really positive environment within the squad and that comes through every week in training. Those guys who are not involved in the gameday squad are making sure that they are doing everything possible to make sure the boys are ready for the game at the weekend. I have been out for the last few weeks but you have to turn up for training ready to go in the morning; that is the minimum requirement of you as a professional player. I am looking forward to Sunday's game, we have got a good mix of young players and senior players who are coming back from injury and that should make things interesting," added Schofield.
The former Sale and Toulon forward is experiencing life in the Championship for the first time this season but he admits he is enjoying the challenge. He added, "It is a good league and I am really enjoying it. I knew it would be a test when I first came here but every week there is some surprise results cropping up. Obviously last week it wasn't great for us that we lost at Bedford but with Bristol, Scottish and Welsh also losing it shows how competitive the division is. Everyone is able to beat each other and I think there is always going to be a shock result each weekend.
"I think you take a lot out of the losses over the course of a season. When you win, you try and put your own performance to the sword but that is obviously especially true in a defeat. We had a long hard look at the start of the week at the Bedford game and we know the only way we can put things right is on the field at the weekend. We will learn from that loss and move on. We have to take a lot from that game and how things panned out for us and improve.
"I haven't been to Huddersfield YMCA but I have heard it is a great set up. It is a pitch at the end of the day but it will be good to have a change in our environment and everyone is looking forward to it. We are going to play some rugby, it will be structured at times and then have a look at what is in front of us. Bryan encourages us to play a good brand of rugby and I think the fans enjoy that," added Schofield.
