    Plenty still to play for the Ospreys at this stage of the season as they look to secure their qualification for next season's Heineken Cup. However, they'll have to do it without the services of Gavin Henson, who misses out with an ankle injury while Grand Slam hero Shane Williams misses out through illness and a dead leg.

    Mike Blair is back in the Edinburgh side having missed the win over Leinster 2 weeks ago although Ross Rennie will miss out following key-hole surgery on his knee.

    The scenario for the Ospreys is realtively straightforward, a win at home and a Dragons' defeat in Dublin will guarantee the Ospreys the third Welsh spot.

    Ospreys: Lee Byrne; Aled Brew, Sonny Parker, Andrew Bishop, Johnny Vaughton; James Hook, Justin Marshall; Duncan Jones, Huw Bennett, Cai Griffiths, Alun Wyn Jones, Ian Evans, Jonathan Thomas, Marty Holah, Ryan Jones©.
    Replacements: Richard Hibbard, Adam Jones, Ian Gough, Filo Tiatia, Rhys Webb, Shaun Connor, Jonathan Spratt.

    Edinburgh: MacRae; Maxwell, Cairns, De Luca, Turnbull; Godman, Blair©; Allori, Ford, G Cross, Mustchin, Gissing, Hogg, MacDonald, Callam.
    Replacements: Lawrie, Traynor, Pringle, Newlands, Laidlaw, Blair, Dey.

    Referee: Peter Fitzgibbon (IRFU).

    Sorry but that was possibly the greatest thing I've ever seen.

    That De Luca/Cairns partnership looks better every time I see it.

    Lyn Jones can FO now. The Ospreys were pathetic and Edinburgh definately deserved the win.
  5. Yep, good deserved win for us. Could have been more emphatic but for the ref, but that's been the story of the year for us.

    Thought we played really well, excellent defence, and our backline looked slick and moved the ball well. Good recycling and patience towards the end of the game to get the win.

    We've not won too many games away from home, but hopefully we'll see that increase over the next season.
