Leaders Glasgow ease past Cardiff as Ospreys collect bonus-point win

Leaders Glasgow Warriors beat Cardiff Blues 36-17 in the Pro12, while Ospreys were 33-13 winners at Benetton Treviso.

PETER HORNE WAS the hat-trick hero for Glasgow Warriors as the Pro12 leaders secured a 36-17 win over Cardiff Blues.

Three conversions and a penalty meant Horne ended Friday’s game with a personal tally of 24 points, while hooker Dougie Hall and Adam Ashe also went over for the hosts.

Gareth Davies and Dan Fish restored some pride for Cardiff, who had Jarrad Hoeata sin-binned during a torrid first half for flooring Peter Murchie off the ball with a stiff arm.

Ospreys are four points behind Glasgow in second place after late tries by Justin Tipuric and Rhys Webb closed out a 33-13 bonus-point win at Benetton Treviso.

The Welsh region surged into an 11-3 lead thanks to Eli Walker’s score on the stroke of half-time, but their evening threatened to unravel as Simone Ragusi went over and Jayden Hayward’s boot put Treviso 13-11 ahead.

Visits to the sin bin for prop Nicky Smith and Webb did not help Ospreys’ cause but Dan Evans put them back ahead after Walker darted through the Italians’ defence.

Dan Biggar increased the lead to eight points with a 71st-minute penalty, part of a 13-point haul, before Tipuric and the returning Webb came to the fore in an impressive final flourish.
