Matthew Morgan salvages a draw for Ospreys against Treviso

Here is a quick look at the Heineken Cup game between Treviso and Ospreys that ended in a 26-26 draw thanks to a late penalty from young Matthew Morgan. The game also included a few great tries, and a very soft looking yellow card decision.

The home side looked as though they were on course for a famous upset but were undone by the long range penalty from 19 year old Morgan, who is already showing signs of being a future Welsh rugby great.

Tommaso Benvenuti was yellow carded after he picked up and dumped Shane Williams in yet another example of a controversial tip tackle decision. On first look it was dangerous as Williams' legs faced skyward, but Benvenut then looked to control it, bringing him to ground safely.

Williams himself said that the result was disappointing for the Ospreys in a 'strange' game of rugby.

"Discipline in the first-half was quite poor - little, silly penalties that kind of takes the wind out of your sails at times. It was very frustrating and, of course, the tries that we conceded were all from our mistakes.

"We got out of jail in the end, but we're disappointed we didn't put that game to bed. But it's never easy to come to Treviso. They are a side that's progressing each year," he added.

Feel free to share your thoughts on the Morgan kick, some great tries, and that yellow card.
