Looks to be another match where Connacht will shoot themselves in the foot.

Connacht can't protect their own possession now....

Hope Munster put up a better show than this.

Try 3 for the Ospreys. Connacht's injuries, plus losing those key players close season, is really beginning to bite.

Try Connacht, conversion? Yes and it's Ospreys 24 Connacht 7.

Ospreys score a 4th try....unconverted, but it makes the (now final) score: Ospreys 29 Connacht 7.

Easy win the ospreys and impressed with parry and cracknell. Worry with beck at 13 and Dirksen on wing about lack of pace. If beck gets a run for Wales then some wheels needed outside him. Rhodri even scrimmaged ok when he came on

Welsh rugby need a blues win today to keep scarlets in top 4 and blues on trail of top 6
