Glasgow and Ospreys wins knock Munster off Pro12 perch

THE OSPREYS BEAT the Scarlets 17-15 in this evening’s Welsh derby to reclaim top spot in the Guinness Pro12.

Munster had moved into pole position overnight following their win over Leinster yesterday at Thomond Park, before Glasgow Warriors’ victory against Edinburgh this afternoon briefly saw the Scots jump to the summit.

However, tries from replacement wing Aisea Natoga and new signing Dan Lydiate at Liberty Stadium ensured the Ospreys picked up their ninth win of the season to return to the top of the league table.

Out-half Dan Biggar kicked a conversion and two penalties for Steve Tandy’s Ospreys, while the Scarlets were on target with five penalties of their own – one from Rhys Priestland and four from the boot of Steve Shingler.

Earlier in the day, Glasgow were 16-6 winners in the first of their back-to-back Scottish derbies against Edinburgh, with number eight Josh Strauss crossing for the only try of the game after Peter Horne’s break up the right touchline.

Duncan Weir converted that score and added two penalties for Glasgow, as Alan Solomons’ Edinburgh managed only two penalties through Sam Hidalgo-Clyne and Tom Heathcote.
