Welsh landmark for Dan Biggar as Ospreys leapfrog Leinster into second
The Ospreys are two points behind Munster after an important derby win in Swansea.

DAN BIGGAR BECAME the first man in Welsh regional rugby to pass 2,000 points as he helped the Ospreys to a 19-9 Guinness Pro12 victory over the Scarlets this evening.

The Wales out-half kicked 14 of his side’s tally at the Liberty Stadium — the other five coming courtesy of a penalty try — to move the Ospreys second, two points behind leaders Munster.

The Scarlets came into the derby clash having won seven successive matches in this competition and led 9-6 at the interval thanks to Rhys Patchell’s three penalties to Biggar’s two in a half which saw the visitors’ Rob Evans yellow-carded for a high tackle.

The Ospreys applied pressure in the second period and the Scarlets saw Will Boyde sin-binned for illegally halting a lineout drive which led to the hosts’ penalty try.

Biggar converted and then added two more penalties in the final 20 minutes — either side of Steffan Evans receiving a third yellow for the Scarlets — to help the Ospreys seal a comfortable win.
