Ospreys put in a commanding performance at home on the weekend as they demolished Treviso in a 10 try spectacle that saw winger Tommy Bowe picking up four tries and the Italian side being crushed 68-8 at the Liberty Stadium.
The Welsh hosts scored some excellent tries as they ran riot with Bowe crossing three times within a 25 minute period in the first half that also saw Nikki Walker scoring twice.
Lee Byrne, Shane Williams and Ed Shervington all scored tries after the interval before Bowe claimed his fourth try six minutes from time.
With a halftime score of 40-8, the game was well beyond Treviso, but they made a game of it after the interval and competed well until the final minutes, when the pressure once again proved too much.
It was an impressive performance from the injury ravaged Welsh side who ran in some classic tries, with flyhalf James Hook showing what a dangerous open field runner he can be.
This match was only broadcast on a Welsh tv channel, so the commentary is in Welsh, not English. The tries are great to watch though, in any language.
