Full Time

Sam Parry's score stands and Josh Thomas' conversion will be the final act of the evening. His effort drifts wide. 36-14


It's history! A captain's challenge from Owen Lane! The centre asks the TMO to have a look at the grounding of their final try. 31-14



Dan Fish on red alert with a quick tap, catching Ospreys napping. Ellis Bevan's pass puts Llewellyn in the hole, who beats Dan Evans and returns to Bevan on his inside, with the scrum half diving in. Thomas with the extras. 31-14



Another debut in Cardiff colours, as 18-year-old Immanuel Feyi-Waboso is introduced. Llongyfarchiadau Immanuel! 31-7


Try (Opp.)

Matthew Aubrey's offload sends Sam Cross over to extend the hosts' lead. Thomas' conversion is good. 31-7



A wonderful line from Llewellyn to slice through the home defence, and a goose step sees him round the covering Protheroe and slide in. Thomas adds the extra two. 24-7



Olly Robinson is on as Keiron Assiratti's yellow card expires. 24-0



More changes made, seeing Teddy Williams and Dan Fish introduced alongside Ellis Bevan. A proud moment for the young scrum half and Cardiff Met product, who makes his senior competitive debut for the club. Llongyfarchiadau Ellis! Murphy, Tovey and Lewis Jones depart. 24-0



A trio of changes see Rhys Carre, Liam Belcher and Will Davies-King replacing Rhys Gill, Kirby Myhill and Alun Lawrence, with Assiratti still in the bin. 24-0


Try (Opp.)

Hooker Phillips is awarded his brace, but Josh Thomas' conversion attempt is short. 24-0


Yellow Card

Assiratti is sent to the bin following a penalty at scrum time. Ospreys go to the corner and drive over, with Phillips in the hunt for a second score. We'll go upstairs... 19-0


Sending our best wishes to George North, who is assisted off the field with what appears to be a knee injury. Dymuniadau gorau i George North. 19-0


A fine offload from Lewis Jones gives Jason Harries space to make a clean break down the right. The attack looking to build momentum here as they go through the phases around the 22. 19-0


Tovey gets us back underway with no changes made at the break. 19-0


Try (Opp.)

Ospreys add a third on the edge of half time. Once again a charge down from Cardiff is favourable for the hosts, bringing a number of players back onside and allowing Aubrey to dot down unopposed. 19-0


Try (Opp.)

The bounce of the ball is favourable for Ospreys, who manage to retrieve Aubrey's high kick and send Kieran Williams racing away to touch down for their second score of the evening. Thomas converts. 12-0


Ospreys knock on and Cardiff Blues look to take advantage by going wide. Blistering break by Owen Lane, who steps Roots in midfield, but Owen Watkin has the angle on him to take him down on the 22. 5-0


Dan Evans slices through thanks to Protheroe's offload, and while Ospreys have an opportunity to attack, both Lewis Jones and Owen Lane make important tackles in the 22. Roots is eventually pinned for flying off his feet at the ruck. 5-0


Ospreys advance up-field after the visitors are penalised. They use the likes of Watkin and Williams in midfield as they hunt for yards around the 22. However, young Gwilym Bradley pops up with a huge turnover to win the penalty and allow Tovey to clear. 5-0


Some nice touches in attack with Assiratti showing soft hands and followed by a expertly weighted kick wide by Ben Thomas, releasing Amos out wide, who advances to the edge of the 22. However the attack eventually comes to an end with a knock on. 5-0


Ospreys look dangerous on the counter, with Protheroe making yards infield. They keep the attack alive through a fine Adam Beard offload, but the final pass wide from Dan Evans drifts forward. 5-0


Try (Opp.)

Ospreys go to the corner and set up the drive. After initial good work from the pack, Ifan Phillips manages to find a way through to dot down in the corner for the opener. 5-0


Ospreys win a penalty at scrum time, and Thomas attempts a long range effort at the sticks. The canned crowd here at the Liberty Stadium go silent for the effort, but the outside half just pulls it wide. 0-0


A couple of massive defensive interventions from skipper Kirby Myhill in these opening exchanges, winning a turnover and later forcing a knock on with a huge hit. The captain leading from the front.c0-0
