Grenoble 7 - 59 Ospreys

Ospreys came with a nine-try riot as they trounced Grenoble with a 7-59 victory in their European Challenge Cup clash on Friday.

Centre Kieron Fonotia (4'), Sam Parry (11'), lock Alun Wyn Jones (26') and centre Josh Matavesi (38') were the try scorers in the first half with Wales international Dan Biggar converting four of it to take the visitors to 28 points by the end of the first half.

In response, centre Clement Gelin's try in the 24th minute and a conversion from fly half Gilles Bosch were the only points for Grenoble as they trailed by 21 points at half-time.

There was no respite whatsoever for Grenoble in the second half as wing Dafydd Howells (49, 57) and Keelan Giles (63, 75) strolled past the post on two occasions each while Biggar himself scored a converted try in the closing stage.

With Grenoble not managing any point in the second half, Ospreys completed a bonus point victory after winning the game by 42 points.

Ospreys lead Pool 2 with 15 points from three matches while Grenoble find themselves at bottom after losing all three games.

Both teams will meet each other again at Liberty Stadium in the next round of the tournament on 17th December.
