    Ospreys complete a late win over Sale to give themselves a decent chance of progressing into the knockout stages, all they need now, I say ALL they need now is one big away win and that should do it.

    Full time match report from the BBC

    Thought the crowd was a bit dissappointing, yeah it was up on their Celtic League average but thought there would be more considering it was such a big match. Fair play to the Ospreys though, had Sale down for the win on this one.

    It's a massive win alright, does Sale no amount of damage cause the chances of them going to Paris and getting the win are slim as well, whether Ospreys can get a result in Stockport though might depend on Sale's trip to Paris.

    we shouldnt really want henson to fail, i mean both these guys have heaps of class, and we should count our blessings tht there both welsh.
     
  16. Totally.

    Why did Hook not start at 10 when Henson had to pull out at the last minute?

    It is odd that he started Connor infront of Hook. O'Connor has been playing well, but I would of loved to see Hook have a full match against a big side.
    Hopefully he will start in the rest of the Heineken Cup matches
