Ospreys 27-13 Edinburgh

Sam Davies

Former Wales Under-20s fly-half Sam Davies (second right) kicked 17 points for Ospreys against Edinburgh

Ospreys continued their push for a top-six Pro12 finish with a hard-fought victory over mid-table rivals Edinburgh.

The Scots led 13-6 at one stage thanks to a try from prop Alan Dell.

But Sam Underhill’s touchdown levelled the scores, before Sam Davies’ string of second-half penalties and a late Scott Otten try sealed the hosts’ win.

Wales flanker Dan Lydiate spent time in the sin-bin before playing his part in the Ospreys’ revival.
