RUGBY: Bath clip Ospreys' wings
1:40pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in Sport
BATH pulled clear in the second half to round off their pre-season programme with a 27-10 success over the Ospreys at the Rec.
The home side had the better of the early exchanges and, after fly-half George Ford had booted a penalty, wing Semesa Rokoduguni and flanker Matt Garvey both went close to the opening try.
Ospreys levelled with a penalty from Wales international Dan Biggar, but Kyle Eastmond's looping pass allowed Matt Banahan to dive over for the first try for Bath.
The visitors seized the lead before the break as Biggar's handling allowed prop Ryan Bevington to go over, Biggar adding the extras.
Ford's trickery soon after half time allowed fellow summer signing Leroy Houston to plough over near the posts, Ford converting.
Rokoduguni then started and finished a multi-phase move for the next score, Ford adding the extras.
Full-back Ollie Devoto's late try completed the scoring.
