Heineken Cup Live

  • [recommend]GOOD EVENING!
    It's a Friday evening in mid-December, which can only mean one thing. No, not dashing down to a crowded shopping centre in a frantic search for Christmas gifts. It's time for another jam-packed weekend of Heineken Cup action!
    12/13/2013 7:03:51 PM
  • DOUBLE HEADER
    We'll be bringing you updates from both of tonight's Heineken Cup games. Glasgow Warriors host Cardiff Blues in Scotstoun in Pool Two, while the winless Ospreys face Castres at the Liberty Stadium in Pool One.
    12/13/2013 7:11:13 PM
  • WARRIORS v BLUES
    We'll be mainly focusing on events at Scotstoun, where the home side desperately need to claim maximum points in order to keep alive their hopes of reaching the knockout stages. You can our preview of this crucial game here.
    12/13/2013 7:17:52 PM
  • TOUGH TIMES FOR OSPREYS
    It's been a rotten campaign for Steve Tandy's men. They've lost all three pool games, including a 15-9 reverse to Castres in France last weekend. With uncertainty surrounding the future of the Welsh regions, their supporters could do with a lift tonight. Here's our match preview.

    12/13/2013 8:00:16 PM
  • [kick-off]KICK-OFF
    We're underway at both the Liberty Stadium and Scotstoun. Big 80 minutes of action coming up.
    12/13/2013 8:01:01 PM
  • OSPREYS 0-0 CASTRES
    Worrying scenes for any Castres fans out there: Richie Gray is down receiving treatment to his left leg. He seems in a lot of discomfort.
    12/13/2013 8:03:13 PM
  • PENALTY! GLASGOW 0-3 CARDIFF
    Glasgow think they've turned over the ball but are penalised for going off their feet. Patchell has a go from inside his own half, and nails it! What a strike, that was over 60m out.
    12/13/2013 8:07:50 PM
  • PENALTY! OSPREYS 0-3 CASTRES
    Ryan Jones is pinged for coming in at the side in a ruck and Kockott curls over the resultant penalty.
    12/13/2013 8:08:46 PM
  • OSPREYS 0-3 CASTRES
    If any of you witnessed Castres' defeat to Leinster in Dublin, you'll remember their replacement scrum-half being sent to the bin crooked feeds at the scrum. Well they're at it again here, Kockott the guilty party. It gives the Ospreys a prime attacking position, and they eventually force a penalty in front of the posts.
    12/13/2013 8:11:24 PM
  • PENALTY! OSPREYS 3-3 CASTRES
    Easy first kick for Biggar and the Ospreys are off the mark.
    12/13/2013 8:12:16 PM
  • GLASGOW 0-3 CARDIFF
    Big scrum from the Blues just inside their own half and they force a penalty. Patchell finds touch inside the Warriors 22. 
    12/13/2013 8:13:43 PM
  • OSPREYS 3-3 CASTRES
    Superb break by Hassler, who receives possession off the back of a messy scrum and tears downfield. It leads to another penalty inside scoring range. Lightening pace from the Canadian wing there.
    12/13/2013 8:15:23 PM
  • PENALTY! OSPREYS 6-3 CASTRES
    Biggar makes no mistake and the Ospreys deservedly lead.
    12/13/2013 8:15:49 PM
  • [substitution]BLOOD SUB. GLASGOW 0-3 CARDIFF
    Captain Kellock needs cleaning up and is replaced by Strauss.
    12/13/2013 8:16:43 PM
  • PENALTY! OSPREYS 6-6 CASTRES
    Instant reply from the visitors, Kockott levelling matters with a close-range penalty. Both sides showing indiscipline at the moment.
    12/13/2013 8:18:23 PM
  • GLASGOW 0-3 CARDIFF
    Halfpenny tries his luck with a long-range penalty but it's off target. Strange decision for him to take that one given that Patchell nailed his attempt from distance.
    12/13/2013 8:19:27 PM
  • GLASGOW 0-3 CARDIFF
    Huge scrum from Glasgow on halfway, Welsh getting stuck into Blues captain Hobbs. Glasgow kick to touch but they botch the move. However, Hogg takes an up-and-under and finds touch with a sweetly-struck low kick. Kellock returns to the fray.
    12/13/2013 8:21:56 PM
  • GLASGOW 0-3 CARDIFF
    The home side are penalised for blocking off at the lineout and Halfpenny will have a kick at goal. The full-back should double the Blues' lead here.
    12/13/2013 8:25:02 PM
  • PENALTY! GLASGOW 0-6 CARDIFF
    Halfpenny judges his kick perfectly and the Blues are six points to the good.
    12/13/2013 8:25:50 PM
  • PENALTY! OSPREYS 9-6 CASTRES
    Ospreys back in front thanks to the boot of Biggar.
    12/13/2013 8:26:00 PM
  • [ouch]OSPREYS 9-6 CASTRES
    Hassler falls back awkwardly after being tackled and the ref immediately stops play. He's okay to continue but Gray isn't, he's replaced by Samson.
    12/13/2013 8:28:46 PM
  • Ryan Grant and Sean Maitland challenge Lions teammate Alex Cuthbert

    12/13/2013 8:30:19 PM
  • [yellow-card]OSPREYS 9-6 CASTRES
    Tales is sent to the bin for cynically killing a superb Ospreys break by Isaacs.
    12/13/2013 8:32:14 PM
  • PENALTY! OSPREYS 12-6 CASTRES
    Biggar punishes Castres with his fourth successful kick.
    12/13/2013 8:33:01 PM
  • GLASGOW 0-6 CARDIFF
    Series of scrums to Glasgow five metres from the Cardiff line. They win a penalty and opt for another scrum. They need to capitalise here.

    12/13/2013 8:34:36 PM
  • [yellow-card]GLASGOW 0-6 CARDIFF
    Another Glasgow scrum, another penalty. Hobbs is sent to the bin as Glasgow call for another scrum. Davies comes on as a prop replacement for Robinson. Another penalty and you feel Gauzere has to award a penalty try.
    12/13/2013 8:37:25 PM
  • PENALTY! OSPREYS 12-9 CASTRES
    Despite being a man down, Kockott reduces the gap with a long-range penalty.
    12/13/2013 8:40:47 PM
  • GLASGOW 0-6 CARDIFF
    Dunbar is inches away from the tryline but is denied by some frantic defending. Maitland then looks set to cross in the corner but knocks-on. Play is brought back for a previous knock-on and it'll be another Glasgow scrum.
    12/13/2013 8:42:00 PM
  • TMO! GLASGOW 0-6 CARDIFF
    After sustained pressure by the forwards, scrum-half Matawalu spots a gap and dives over. The referee goes upstairs. Was there obstruction?
    12/13/2013 8:43:52 PM
  • NO TRY! GLASGOW 0-6 CARDIFF
    Harley is penalised for obstruction and the try is disallowed.
    12/13/2013 8:45:03 PM
  • OSPREYS 12-9 CASTRES
    Castres back to the full compliment and they launch a late attack which yields another penalty. The referee is losing patience and has some strong words for Ryan Jones. Kockott will have a kick at goal.
    12/13/2013 8:46:32 PM
  • [half-time]PENALTY! OSPREYS 12-12 CASTRES
    Level-pegging at the Liberty thanks to Kockott's late penalty. Castres will be the happier side after keeping their hosts at bay while down to 14 men.
    12/13/2013 8:48:18 PM
  • [half-time]GLASGOW 0-6 CARDIFF
    Despite dominating in the scrum and enjoying plenty of territory and possession, Glasgow fail to register a single point in the opening half. The Blues lead through penalties from Patchell and Halfpenny.
    12/13/2013 8:51:29 PM
  • Niko Matawalu crosses for Glasgow but it's ruled out for obstruction

    12/13/2013 8:52:50 PM
  • AMLIN UPDATE
    Sale are in complete control in their Amlin Challenge Cup clash with Oyonnax. They lead 34-0 at half-time through tries from Gaskell, Cipriani, Brady and Cueto.
    12/13/2013 9:00:14 PM
  • [kick-off]OSPREYS 12-12 CASTRES
    We're back underway at the Liberty Stadium.
    12/13/2013 9:02:28 PM

  • Ospreys scrum-half Rhys Webb gets the ball away under pressure
