Ospreys secure four-try victory

The Ospreys all but ended the Newport Gwent Dragons' slim hopes of progressing in the LV=Cup with a 26-21 victory over their Welsh rivals at the Brewery Field.

The Ospreys had lost the last three meetings between the sides but tries courtesy of Ross Jones, Hanno Dirksen, Eli Walker and South African centre Stefan Watermeyer gave them their first win in this season's Anglo-Welsh competition, with fly-half Matthew Morgan kicking three conversions.

The Dragons had been level at 14-all at the interval thanks to a try from wing Pat Leach and three penalties from fly-half Steffan Jones, but replacement Luke Williams' last-gasp try was their only score of the second half.
