OSPREYS MAULED AT MEGGETLAND
Edinburgh Rugby: 31 (22) Ospreys: 25 (11)
I've missed a few matches recently, primarily due to being submerged under a tidal wave of apologetic letters from financial services providers, at last admitting they'd mis-sold me various products in the past and sending me money. But no-one was asking for their money back at Meggetland this evening (did you see what I did there?) as the Embramen ran out 31-25 at their temporary home.

All the visitors had to show for their trouble was two first half penalties from Laidlaw and a second half shutout, plus two yellow cards.
A bit was made post-match after this season's standout forward, Cornell du Preez, was carded late in the first period with the Gunners only 12-6 down and things looking pretty competitive. One could say with some confidence that 'leading recklessly with the head' is not the brightest approach to clearning Paul O'Connell out of a ruck for all sorts of reasons.
