OSPREYS 13 CARDIFF BLUES 6
A try from skipper Alun Wyn Jones helped Ospreys come from behind to win the Guinness PRO12 derby clash against Cardiff Blues at a rain-lashed Liberty Stadium.
Blues, who claimed a losing bonus point in the 13-6 defeat but have not won in Swansea since 2005, were leading 6-0 through two Jarrod Evans penalties before Jones squeezed over.
Sam Davies, having replaced an injured Dan Biggar at half-time, capped an influential performance with eight points with the boot.
EDINBURGH 32 NG DRAGONS 13
Edinburgh extended their winning run in all competitions to three matches with a victory over Newport Gwent Dragons that was as convincing as the 32-13 scoreline suggests.
Edinburgh’s points came from tries by Willem Nel, Alasdair Dickinson, Tom Brown and Matt Scott as they brought to an end a three-match losing streak in the Guinness PRO12. Sam Hidalgo-Clyne booted 10 points and Blair Kinghorn added two.
The Dragons could have few complaints over the outcome, having contributed to their own downfall with a loss of discipline that led to four players being sent to the sin bin.
The visitors had only a pair of Dorian Jones penalties to show for their efforts until Nic Cudd scored and converted a late try.
GLASGOW 13 BENETTON TREVISO 6
Adam Ashe’s late try helped Glasgow Warriors to a hard-fought 13-6 victory over Treviso on a bleak night at Scotstoun Stadium.
This ended up as a show of front-eight strength for Glasgow after being outmuscled in their Champions Cup 26-15 defeat to Northampton last week.
It was a win chiselled out from as much of Treviso’s anaemic attack, which showed flickers of life, but the visitors were ultimately handed their 17th consecutive Guinness Pro12 loss.
