Ospreys 19 - 32 Bath Rugby, Liberty Stadium

A strong second-half upsurge helped Bath Rugby secure a home semi-final in the Anglo-Welsh Cup with a 32-19 bonus-point win over the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium on Friday.

The game was almost even-stevens at the half time with the English side leading by just one point after both teams scored a couple of tries each.

Levi Douglas (32) and Matt Banahan (44) scored tries for Bath while Dewi Cross (12) and Sam Cross (22) scored for the hosts.

On the 69th minute, James Hook crossed over for a crucial try followed by Luke Price's conversion giving the hosts a single point lead for the first time in the game.

However, two crucial penalty tries following two scrum surges in the final 10 minutes of the game turned the outcome in favor of the visitors.

Josh Lewis slotted the conversion for both tries as Bath went through to the knock-out stage.
