Biggar stars in Ospreys win

The Ospreys enjoyed a fruitful trip to Parma on Friday night as they brushed past the challenge of Zebre 34-16 in the RaboDirect PRO12 league.

Steve Tandy's side scored three tries at the Stadio XXV Aprile.

Fly-half Dan Biggar claimed 24 points.

He opened the proceedings with a sixth-minute penalty and, after Gonzalo Garcia had levelled, he pushed his side out to 9-3 with two more three-pointers.

Zebre's Alberto Chillon was then sent to the sin-bin and Richard Fussell made the most of his absence by grabbing his side's first try.

Biggar converted and, when Jonathan Thomas went in as well, the Ospreys led 21-6 at the break, with Daniel Halangahu scoring a penalty on the whistle.

Luca Redolfini then touched down (43) and when Halangahu converted it was 21-13, before he and Biggar traded penalties.

The Wales international would have the last word, though, scoring a fifth penalty before converting his own try inside the last quarter.
