Ospreys began their Rabo Direct Pro 12 season with a hard-fought victory over Benetton Treviso, whose run of five successive home wins against Welsh sides came to an end at Stadio Monigo.
Tries from Scott Baldwin and Ben John plus 14 points from the boot of Dan Biggar sealed an important victory for the Ospreys, who were made to work hard for their victory by a determined Treviso outfit.
The hosts led 12-10 at the start of the second half following four penalties from Alberto di Bernardo, while they then reduced the deficit to two points heading into the final quarter of an hour through Simone Favaro's try but Biggar's penalty effectively settled matters.
Final score Treviso 19-24 Ospreys.
