  • Ospreys 17-6 Toulouse

  • A deserved win for the Ospreys, the electric Eli Walker named Man of the Match. Gritty defence and clinical finishing from the Ospreys, but Toulouse were woeful with the ball in hand and come away from Swansea with nothing.

  • From the lineout Toulouse charge again looking for the bonus point, but Bishop turns the ball over and Walker is away, kicking behind the defence and forcing Toulouse back. Slow ball but the try line is very far away for the French side, yet they break through Burgess. Clerc with a simple two on one but butchers his pass into touch. All over.

  • Ryan Jones steals possession from the scrum and the Ospreys escape, but not for long. More Toulouse pressure but again the Ospreys get away, before the Frenchmen come again through Vincent Clerc. Jones there again for the turnover and the Ospreys find touch.

  • No try for Toulouse but they have a scrum five metres out - with Jones in the bin giving them a serious opportunity.

  • YELLOW CARD, OSPREYS, ADAM JONES! Toulouse drive for the line but there is uncertainty over the grounding of the ball. Adam Jones meanwhile is sent to the sin-bin, leaving the Ospreys down to 14 men for the rest of the match.

  • Penalty to Toulouse who set up a lineout in the Ospreys half. Montes finds his man and the forwards take the ball up on the right hand side into the Ospreys 22. Albacete through a gap down the middle, Jauzion's pass is knocked backwards and the Ospreys regather to win the scrum.

  • Free-kick to the Ospreys and Biggar finds an enormous touch, but Huget takes the quick lineout. Returned kick comes back to Biggar who finds plenty of space near the Toulouse 22 for a lineout.

  • Little errors have let Toulouse down all afternoon - a crucial scrum now in the Ospreys 22 with the four-time champions currently out of bonus point range.

  • All the momentum with the Ospreys, another dangerous attack but this time Albacete forces the turnover. Penalty to the French side against Hibbard for offside, going for the corner.

  • Fotuali'i turns over possession in the Ospreys half. Bishop's kick is charged down but the ball bounces perfectly for Fussell who runs upfield, passing to Bishop and then onto Beck who is denied a try by a brilliant try-saving tackle from Fickou.

  • TRY, OSPREYS, WALKER! 17-6 Eli Walker's pace causing Toulouse real problems, breaking from the restart back into the visitors 22. The ball goes from right to left and who else but Walker dances his way past Huget on the wing to finish in the corner.

  • PENALTY, OSPREYS, BIGGAR! 12-6. No problem for the Wales fly-half, gap extended to six points.

  • YELLOW CARD, TOULOUSE, BOUILHOU! Penalty at the lineout to Toulouse who clear their lines, but Doussain misses touch, Fussell returning the ball with interest. High tackle on Walker and the Ospreys have the penalty, Bouilhou sin-binned.

  • Burgess stripped and the Ospreys break, Fotuali'i releasing Eli Walker down the left wing. Outside the Toulouse 22, Bearman loops an offload to Ross Jones who is bundled into touch.

  • Census Johnston thunders into Lloyd Peers and Toulouse turn the ball over - penalty to the visitors with Doussain lining this one up from just over 40 metres out and hitting the post.

  • A dominant scrum from the Ospreys wins a penalty, Biggar finding touch near halfway. Biggar's chip is just too far for Andrew Bishop who knocks on, Toulouse clearing away.

  • Picamoles on the charge from a Toulouse lineout as the visitors build the pressure, but Nyanga knocks on following good defence from the Ospreys.

  • Kick forward from Doussain is gathered by Fickou in a dangerous position, but his offload goes forward after a good tackle from Walker.

  • Eli Walker returns a clearing kick with interest, but Ross Jones loses the ball forward to give Toulouse a scrum.
