Ospreys 59-5 Zebre

Sam Parry's momentous hat-trick at Swansea led Ospreys to a dominant 59 - 5 win against the Zebre during the Pro12 clash on Friday.

Parry entered the history books by becoming the first Ospreys forward to score a hat-trick for the region.

Apart from Parry (7, 39, 46), Lloyd Ashley (12), Ashley Beck (24), Ben John (58, 78) and Dafydd Howells (74) contributed to Ospreys try tally as Steve Tandy's men crushed the poor Italian side at the Liberty Stadium.

Fly-half Sam Davies successfully converted all eight tries in addition to scoring the only penalty of the match on the fourth minute.

Hooker Tommaso d'Apice was the only point scorer for the visitors as he scored a face saving try in 34th minute.

Zebre, who conceded 99 tries last season are off to a similar start this year as their defence completely crumbled under pressure from the Ospreys.
