Ospreys 26 - 15 Cardiff Blues

Guinness PRO12 leaders Ospreys made it six wins from six by beating Welsh rivals Cardiff Blues 26-15 in a one-sided clash at the Liberty Stadium.

The match may have finished two tries each, but the Ospreys dominated possession and territory for large periods and could easily have achieved a bonus-point win.

The home side scored a try in each half for Dan Evans and Rhys Webb, with Dan Biggar supplying 16 points with four penalties and two conversions. The Blues rallied at the end with tries for Lloyd Williams and Kristian Dacey.

Adam Jones faced his former region Ospreys for the first time since joining them in August.

In the early stages the Blues struggled to get their hands on the ball and soon found themselves 9-0 behind after 11 minutes through three Biggar penalties.

It did not get any better for the Blues as Warburton found himself yellow-carded for not being 10 metres when Webb attempted a tap penalty.

That offence saw Biggar make it four penalties on the trot.

The Blues did get on the scoreboard on 26 minutes with a finely struck penalty from Rhys Patchell on halfway.

The only thing missing from the Ospreys' confident performance was a try, but that arrived on 29 minutes in the form of full-back Evans went over after another wave of attacks by the home side.

In the dying minutes the Blues finally got some momentum and scored two late consolation tries.


Ospreys score narrow victory against Zebre

Sam Davies kicked all of the Ospreys' points as they battled back to edge out Zebre 15-14 in their Guinness PRO12 match in Italy.

Davies booted five penalties to ensure the visitors extended their 100 per cent start to the new season. Their record came under threat in the early stages of the game with an unconverted try from Giulio Bisegni for Zebre.

Davies pegged the Italians back to 5-3, but a Gonzalo Garcia penalty restored the lead to five points. Another Davies penalty followed to make it 8-6 at half-time, but Garcia landed his second soon after the break.

Davies booted his third penalty before Zebre had Giulio Toniolatti sent to the sin-bin.

Both teams missed penalties before Davies found his range again to put the visitors 12-11 in front.

Garcia's third kick turned the match back in Zebre's favour, but Davies had the last say with eight minutes remaining to make it five wins out of five for his team. Final score Zebre 14-15 Ospreys.

Adam Jones: Move to Blues represents new challenge

Adam Jones says his move to Cardiff Blues is about "a new challenge".

At this stage in my career I want a new environment and to really push myself.

I've been really impressed by the set-up at Blues and the desire to achieve in the coming years under the leadership of Mark Hammett. It is that ambition and potential for the future that excites me about this move.

Obviously I would like to thank everyone at the Ospreys - from the players and coaches to the wonderful supporters - who have been absolutely fantastic with me. I wish the region every success for the future.
