Exiles win at last

London Irish brought their losing run to an end with a deserved 24-12 victory over Ospreys that damages the Welsh team's Heineken Cup ambitions.

Irish went into the game looking to end a run of 10 consecutive defeats, their worst in four years, and tries from Sailosi Tagicakibau and Topsy Ojo saw them do so with Dan Bowden kicking 11 points and Ryan Lamb booting another three.

Dan Biggar slotted three penalties for Ospreys with james Hook adding another.

And there was further bad news for Ospreys, and Wales ahead of the Six Nations, with Adam Jones taken off at half-time after suffering what looked like an injury to his left shoulder when a scrum collapsed.
