Sean Holley admits he will spill Biarritz's secrets to Munster coach Tony McGahan this weekend.
Holley and his Ospreys side suffered a heart-breaking 29-28 Heineken Cup quarter-final defeat to the French giants almost a fortnight ago.
But head coach Holley has revealed he will exchange ideas with McGahan before tomorrow's (Sat) Magners League showdown, just eight days ahead of the Red Army's semi-final in San Sebastian.
Holley said: "I'd imagine Tony will ask me. He's a good man, a good coach and a nice person who said a lot of nice things about us as a coaching team and a playing group last year. So I might swap a few stories with him."
Both sides lie in the top four as the race for the end-of-season play-offs hots up with the crunch clash at Thomond Park.
The Limerick venue holds painful memories for the visitors after they were humiliated 43-9 in last season's knock-out tie before then witnessing Munster lift the Magners League title in May.
But Holley believes the Ospreys will be motivated to banish their demons as they bid to nail down a home semi-final.
He added: "We have moved on from last season. It wasn't a happy day and it wasn't my favourite post-match press conference. But you have to go through these experiences.
"I spoke to Michael Cheika last weekend and he said it was painful to watch our game against Biarritz because he has been there while I also spoke to Tony and Alan Gaffney because they have all been there before.
"We have a great group of players but unfortunately it's another one of these experiences we have had to go through like Munster last year.
"We believe we notched things up this year and we will get there in the end. But it's not nice though.
"Munster were deserved winners last season and we showed them respect on the day. We played well for a spell but we didn't have enough left in the tank.
"But this year we are in good shape. We have a lot of players who are back from long-term injuries in Adam Jones, Lee Byrne, Mike Phillips and Alun Wyn Jones while Dan Biggar and Andrew Bishop didn't play during the Six Nations so there is still petrol left in the tank.
"And it's an opportunity for us to go back there and show that that wasn't the real Ospreys. We want to be the ones smiling and lifting the trophy and that is what is spurring us on at the moment."
Munster have fitness concerns over skipper Paul O'Connell and Doug Howlett but Holley believes his men will face a charged-up home side.
Holley added: "Munster will pick their best available side to them. History suggests to me that they will do that. They enjoy playing a big game before a Heineken game as it prepares them. That's the way they approach things mentally. They become a hardened outfit and they are an excellent and professional set-up.
"They will use this game to prepare for Biarritz but it's also an important game as both sides want a home semi-final in the play-offs.
"They will want to win the Magners as much as they want to win the Heineken. That's the way it should be. But we want to win our last two games
"We have one eye on permutations and we have a magic figure of 51 points in mind but I believe two wins would be enough."
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
