Keelan Giles at the double as Ospreys ease past Grenoble

Keelan Giles added another pair of tries to his collection as Ospreys coasted to a 59-7 European Challenge Cup win over Grenoble to maintain a perfect record in Pool 2.

Giles, shortlisted for the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award, took his tally to 11 tries in just seven appearances for Ospreys.

Dafydd Howells also crossed twice, while there were further tries for Kieron Fonotia, Sam Parry, Alun Wyn Jones, Josh Matavesi and Dan Biggar, who added seven conversions.

Ospreys are five points clear of Lyon after three games following the French side's 42-12 win over Newcastle.

Centre Paul Bonnefond went in for a hat-trick for the hosts, who also breached the Falcons' defence through Sami Mavinga, Felix Lambey and Agustin Figuerola.

Flanker Daniel Temm and replacement hooker Rob Vickers went over for Newcastle's tries, with fly-half Brett Connon adding a conversion.

In the evening's other match, Benetton Treviso recorded a 28-15 win over Bayonne in Pool 1.
