Ospreys survive Clermont comeback to hold on at home

Ospreys survive Clermont comeback to hold on at home

Ospreys held on to keep out Clermont in a nail-biting Heineken Cup clash at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday. The French visitors fought back from a 19 point deficit, only to come up short as the hosts won the match 25-24.

Tommy Bowe, Ryan Jones, and Barry Davies scored the tries for Ospreys, with Dan Biggar slotting two conversions and a penalty, while James Hook kicked a dropgoal.

Clermont scored three tries in the second half as they set off on a thrilling comeback that silenced the home crowd. Broke James converted the tries that were scored by Benoit Baby, Thomas Domingo, and Alexandre Lapandry.

Former All Black Jerry Collins summed the match up nicely.

"We got out of jail today, he said.

But we've done well to regather and keep it together. We managed to come out on the right side of the scoresheet. Those first 15 minutes (in the second-half), we couldn't do anything right.

"Winning's always better than losing. We'll dissect it on Monday but now enjoy the win."
