Try (Opp.)

Sam Parry crashes over for Ospreys' third. 6-22 #URC



Jarrod Evans is on, replacing Rhys Priestland. 6-17 #URC


Webb thinks he's scored a brace but the TMO shows Cuthbert knocking on in the build-up. 6-17 #URC


Cardiff with plenty of zip in the attack, looking for a moment of inspiration, but Webb is on hand to intercept and runs the length to dot down. 6-17 #URC


Amos unlocks the defence with a show-and-go followed by the offload to Lane. The wing runs out of space, but his offload back infield keeps it alive but Tomos Williams can only hack through and Protheroe gathers. 6-10 #URC


Try (Opp.)

Cabango picks up a rebounded ball, but is caught isolated and is penalised for holding on. Anscombe puts it in the corner and Dewi Lake wrestles his way over. 6-8 #URC


Another big steal from Belcher on the 22m line. 6-3 #URC



First replacements for Cardiff as Dillon Lewis is on for Dmitri Arhip. 6-3 #URC


Penalty Goal (Opp.)

A long range strike from Anscombe puts Ospreys on the board. 6-3 #URC


Penalty Goal

A scrum penalty gives Priestland the chance to double Cardiff's advantage, and the playmaker makes no mistakes from the tee. 6-0 #URC


One final Ospreys attack of the half, with Giles and Watkin looking dangerous. Collins starches over but is held up and we'll head into the interval with only three points on the board in the opening 40! 3-0 #URC


Strong carry by Morris brings Ospreys into the Cardiff 22, but Belcher is on hand to steal at the breakdown. 3-0 #URC


Amos the latest to provide a clever kick behind to relieve pressure and bring play back to the Ospreys 22. 3-0 #URC


Tomos Williams' kick behind pins Ospreys back and Giles can only find touch just outside his own 22 with the clearance. 3-0 #URC


A trademark Amos up-and-under is gathered deep by Anscombe but the full back follows up to drag the Ospreys 10 back a few meters. 3-0 #URC


This game needed a spark, and it's the hosts that provide it. Priestland - with a knock on advantage behind him - looks for the counter and it pays off as space is created for Ratti to gallop downfield, but the ball eventually goes dead on the Ospreys 22. 3-0 #URC


Excellent last ditch tackle from Amos to clatter a rampaging Jac Morgan. Ospreys retain possession however and look to crank up the pressure but Cuthbert knocks on after a thumping hit. 3-0 #URC


Big tackle from James Ratti to hold up Max Nagy in the counter. Support arrives to strangle possession and force the scrum. 3-0 #URC


Penalty Goal

The Blue and Blacks are ahead as Priestland drills his penalty attempt straight down the middle. 3-0 #URC


Max Llewellyn really getting stuck in in these early stages, making the hard yards from midfield. The Cardiff attack eventually earn a penalty and Priestland points to the sticks. 0-0 #URC


Ospreys penalised for not retreating following Webb's kick downfield, and Cardiff are now on the fringes of the visitors' 22. 0-0 #URC


A little dart by Owen Watkin in midfield, but his offload is knocked forward. 0-0 #URC


Really scrappy, tense opening quarter so far, with both sides still looking for the breakthrough. 0-0 #URC


Lane returns to the field from the bin with the deadlock yet to be broken. 0-0 #URC


James Ratti carries from the base of a scrum, but is taken down by what looks like a high tackle from Webb. However, Tomos Williams is still able to clear his lines and the resulting Ospreys line is put under enough pressure to concede a penalty. 0-0 #URC


Keelan Giles looks clear as Rhys Webb finds space from turnover ball. However, the wing can't gather and Cardiff are awarded a scrum in their own corner. 0-0 #URC


Cardiff win the penalty at the first scrum of the afternoon and Priestland's kick to touch brings us up to Ospreys' half, around 30 meters out. 0-0 #URC


Ospreys this time turn to the midfield from a line-out on Cardiff's 22, but their attack comes to no avail, with Morris knocking on. 0-0 #URC


Another defensive set denies a close range Ospreys drive, forcing them out of play. 0-0 #URC


Yellow Card

Early 10 minutes in the bin for Owen Lane for a deliberate knock-on. 0-0 #URC


Looked a tad harsh on Liam Belcher, but the hooker is penalised as he goes for the jackal and Ospreys kick to the corner. The visitors set up a drive from the line and Dewi Lake goes crashing over but brilliant defensive work by Tomos Williams denies the try. 0-0 #URC


Kick Off

Gareth Anscombe gets the game underway and it is absolutely rocking here at CAP! 0-0 #URC
