Neath coach Lyn Jones says it's time the Walsh All Blacks performed on the European stage.
Asked about his side's record of only six wins in 28 European outings, Jones is blunt:
"We weren't good enough then ... we are now".
Neath face champions Leicester in the first round of the Heineken Cup on Friday night, and Jones says his team can follow in the footsteps of fellow Welsh sides Pontypridd and Llanelli, who both beat the Tigers in their Heineken Cup-winning seasons of 2000-01 and 2001-02.
"Last week's loss to Munster exposed some of the poison in our side," Jones said.
"It's brought us back to earth a bit. It's focused our minds. Let's face it - they don't come much bigger than a game against the Tigers.
"We now know that what you can get away with in the Welsh Premiership, you can't get away with in the Heineken Cup or Celtic League.
"Deep down, the Leicester boys will be coming here thinking they'll win. Hopefully, that attitude will serve us well."
Jones said Leicester deserved to be Heineken Cup favourites.
"They're a very good outfit. If had a pound, I'd put it on them to win the whole thing."
Jones said British Lions star Austin Healey and England lock Ben Kay were just two Leicester players to worry about - more so than Tigers and Lions captain Martin Johnson.
"Healey is a very special player, and Kay is a very, very good player. He's one we have to watch. Let's face it, he's a positive player. Martin Johnson is negative. He tries to stop you playing, rather than being constructive," said Jones.
