    See that the Ospreys are 28-7 up at half time against Grenoble.

    Per the Western Mail:

    Half Time: Grenoble 7-28 Ospreys
    Couldn’t have really gone much better for the visitors here.

    They got off to a flier with tries from Kieron Fonotia and Sam Parry opening up a 14-point lead.

    Grenoble hit back with a bit of pressure, though, and grabbed a try of their own.

    But the Ospreys kicked on in the second quarter and tries from Alun Wyn Jones and Josh Matavesi have the bonus point wrapped up.

    Try Ospreys! 7-47
    Hunt comes on the crash but loses it just inside the Ospreys half.

    Keelan Giles picks it up and weaves around four defenders before racing away from the cover.

    That’s incredible pace and an outstanding try.

    Biggar adds the extras.

    Looks like a home Quarter-Final match at The Liberty

    Really friendly with the Giles family and went to Rhodes with his parents this summer. Keelan Is a real find, but I think most who have watched him as a youngster knew this would happen, maybe not quite this quick, he is a genuine, honest, hard working boy and a credit to his parents. That was some try by the way

    Luckily, Defoe left his shooting boots on the banks of The Wear.

    Fantastic last 65 mins by the team today, running in 71 unanswered points after Grenoble had scored early doors.

    13,500 tickets sold for the Scarlets on the 27th, and hospitality sold out.

    They have a League match on Thursday - as they are staring relegation in the face, the Challenge Cup is a distraction for them.

    They are finding it tough in the Super 14. That said right now we are doing very well on bonus point wins both in the cup and in the Pro 12 and we have one of the best defensive records in both.
