    12/6/2014 3:35:43 PM
  • Ospreys 3-13 Racing Metro [try]
    TRY! That is a very well worked try from racing Metro. They use their big forwards up the middle to draw in the defence and lock Francois van der Merwe out on the win uses his power to get over. A quick  discussion with his touch judge and the ref awards the try. Goosen converts.
    12/6/2014 3:38:30 PM

    Racing are all over their hosts at the moment. They have an attacking line out well in the Ospreys 22 but they knock on and Ospreys can relieve the pressure.

    Racing attack as Wenceslas Lauret claims Biggar's kick and breaks up the middle. The ball comes back and fullback Benjamin Lapeyre races into the line - he has a two man overlap but opts to kick it through and it goes over the deadball line.
    12/6/2014 3:52:31 PM
  • Ospreys 6-16 Racing Metro [missed-chance]
    Ospreys back up to 15 men as King comes back on. But Racing are back on the attack as Andreu races up the touchline, he somehow gets through a couple of tackles as he cuts back inside and offloads the ball straight into Alexandre Dumoulin's arms - but the big centre knocks it on with the try line begging! 
    12/6/2014 3:58:19 PM
  • Ospreys 6-16 Racing Metro
    Really good work from the Ospreys pack who win a penalty at the scrum. They take it quickly and attack through Beck who then grubbers it through for Tom Grabham to chase. Racing do well to get back and they then win a penalty as Webb comes offside. 
    12/6/2014 4:01:13 PM
  • Half-time: Ospreys 6-16 Racing Metro
    Racing go into the break with a good lead - it could have been a bigger margin but the ospreys will also be disappointed not to have made more of their rare chances. 
    12/6/2014 4:02:46 PM
  •  Ospreys 6-16 Racing Metro
    We are back for the second-half. Biggar kicks us off.

    12/6/2014 4:15:58 PM
  •  Ospreys 6-16 Racing Metro

    12/6/2014 4:17:37 PM
  •  Ospreys 6-16 Racing Metro[missed-chance]
    Webb shows and goes from the back of a ruck and he is away - he grubbers the ball fro Eli Walker to chase but the racing defence get there first and take the ball into touch! 

    12/6/2014 4:19:33 PM
  •  Ospreys 6-16 Racing Metro
    Opsreys have a penalty after racing pull the driving maul straight to ground. The hostsm opt for a scrum about 5 metres out. 
    12/6/2014 4:20:51 PM
  •  Ospreys 9-16 Racing Metro [penalty-rugby]
    A scrappy scrum but the Opsreys get the ball out, they look to attack through Biggar. Another penalty to the Ospreys and Biggar takes his time with this one and nails it. 
    12/6/2014 4:22:51 PM
  •  Ospreys 9-16 Racing Metro
    That score has really got the Ospreys' tail up. They have the momentum and look to attack and off-load. Some lovely passing out wide to Eli Walker who is just nabbed by Casey Laulala.
    12/6/2014 4:24:51 PM
  •  Ospreys 9-16 Racing Metro
    Racing Metro putting in some huge defence here - Ronan O'Gara spoke about dealing with the osprey's purple patches and they are certainly having a patch here. 
    12/6/2014 4:26:20 PM
  •  Ospreys 12-16 Racing Metro [penalty-rugby]
    That purple patch results in another chance for Biggar as Racing are penalised at the breakdown. A good strike from the Opsreys No.10. 
    12/6/2014 4:28:43 PM
  •  Ospreys 12-16 Racing Metro
    Racing have got some territory of their own now as Mike Phillips looks to get his forwards on the front foot. Goosen goes for a drop goal but it is wide. 
    12/6/2014 4:32:44 PM
  • We have lost a bit of control and Ospreys look like the dominate team, hopefully we can get more control of the ball and some field position because the result looks like only going one way at the moment. 
    Racing Metro coach Ronan O'Gara
    12/6/2014 4:39:09 PM
  •  Ospreys 12-16 Racing Metro
    O'Gara has obviously got his message onto the pitch as Racing get then nudge on in the scrum and they get solid ball that allows them to attack the wider channels through Lapeyre.
    12/6/2014 4:43:36 PM
  •  Ospreys 12-16 Racing Metro
    The pressure tells as Ospreys concede a penalty - it's a pretty straightforward kick but Goosen fluffs it. Justin Tipuric has to clear it from behind his lines.
    12/6/2014 4:45:03 PM
  • Ospreys 12-16 Racing Metro
    Racing have a great attacking line out but the make a real meal of it and Ospreys get the ball and clear their lines. 
    12/6/2014 4:46:16 PM
  • Ospreys 12-16 Racing Metro
    Racing once again on the attack through their forwards - they look unstoppable but King smashes into Dimitri Szarzewski and stops the move dead. 
    12/6/2014 4:47:36 PM
  • Ospreys 12-16 Racing Metro
    To make matters worse - for racing anyway - they concede a free-kick at the scrum. Ospreys look to make the most of this and attack down the centre. 
    12/6/2014 4:49:46 PM
  • Ospreys 12-16 Racing Metro
    Great work from the Ospreys who are looking for space and width. Beck runs a beautiful angle off a ruck but the pass to him from Webb is forward.
