I do not profess to be a big rugby fan, well that's not  entirely true. I love watching rugby, and myself and the boys are very vocal when it comes to knock on's or tries, or much of what else happens too!

So for a blow by blow account perhap's  I'm not your girl, however there is a game report below.

Ospreys 27

Tries; Bowe 2 Conversions; Biggar Penalties; Biggar 3 Drop Goal; Biggar2

Scarlets  19

Tries; J Davies Conersions; S Jones Penalties; S Jones 4


The opening try was won by the Scarlets but the Ospreys dominated play and yet despite this struggled at times it seemed to turn this into a lead. Not least because the Scarlets held strong with a great defence. It wasn't until 4 minutes from the end that the Ospreys claimed the lead with Biggar's penalty taking them to 20-19. With a final score of 27-19

This leaves the Ospreys in place for the top four and more importantly keeps their title hopes alive, but the next three will be difficult Ulster, Leinster and then Munster.

Ospreys Coach Sean Holley:

"I'm pretty relieved. I think it was a great derby for different reasons.

"The conditions meant it was quite tactical with a lot of kicking but full credit to the Scarlets, I thought they were excellent and pushed us all the way.

"With this bunch you're always confident you can get back in the game."


Scarlets coach Nigel Davies:

"We are doing this too often, it's got to stop.

"We had enough of that game but what we didn't do was control the territory, our kicking game was poor and put us under a lot of pressure.

"We had a chance at the end, lost our composure in their 22 and went for the big pass that wasn't on and it was cruel in the end."


I realise that this is not the most comprehensive game report, but I tried! Can you do better would you like to write a sports blog? get in contact swansea@thebestof.co.uk
