Ospreys reclaim top spot as their Welsh rivals face Leinster and Munster

Wales out-half Sam Davies did his hopes of earning more international action no harm last night.

WALES MAY BE enduring a miserable Six Nations, but out-half Sam Davies had an enjoyable return to club duty last night as Ospreys edged to a 13-9 victory over Edinburgh at Myreside and reclaimed top spot in the Guinness Pro12 table.

Davies came on as a second-half replacement at Murrayfield last weekend when Wales were beaten 29-13 by Scotland, the visitors’ efforts coming in for plenty of criticism.

Yet having been released to play for Ospreys along with several of his international team-mates, Davies turned in a man-of-the-match performance on his return to Scotland’s capital — a fine run and offload setting up the only try of the match for Josh Matavesi.

Davies converted the score and added two penalties during a performance that is likely to boost his chances of gaining more game-time with Wales.

Ospreys now lead Leinster, who host Scarlets today, by three points. Ahead of today’s visit to Cardiff Blues, Munster are five points off the top. Edinburgh remain ninth, their only points last night coming from the boot of Duncan Weir.
