Steve Tandy: Ospreys can improve on record Dragons beating
STEVE Tandy kept the Ospreys' record 52-19 victory over the Dragons in cool perspective ahead of the Judgement Day date with the Blues at the Millennium Stadium.
There were seven tries in a success that powers the Pro12 champions back into the top four at the expense of the Scarlets.
Tandy was pleased with the triumph but maintained that his side still needed to get better for the trip to Cardiff next Saturday.
"It's a happy changing room, but it's a changing room that knows we have to make improvements to some areas of our game ahead of the match with the Blues," he said straight after the Ospreys' biggest ever win over the Dragons.

"It was a professional performance and good to get the bonus point in the bag early.
"But I still think we left a few tries out there."
Kahn Fotuali'i, Tom Habberfield, Ashley Beck, Tom Isaacs, Dan Biggar, Dimitri Arhip and Justin Tipuric crossed for the home tries, with Biggar supplying a further 13 points with the boot and Matthew Morgan slotting two conversions.
For the Dragons, Dan Evans and Toby Faletau crossed.
Dan Lydiate came through his comeback game unscathed, with the back rower lasting 40 minutes.
The Gwent club's coach Darren Edwards believes the Ospreys have the armoury to qualify for the top four and push for a second successive Pro12 title.
"I certainly do think they will make the top four," he said.
"They have solid half-backs, an impressive power game and are good at controlling territory. Those are the ingredients that can help a side challenge for the title."
