  • Wow, it's all over at the Liberty Stadium. 15-15 was the final score in a game the Ospreys may feel they should have won. For Leicester, they will be pleased to now face Toulouse at Welford Road knowing that that a win would see them top the Pool.

  • A draw would be okay for Leicester and with 30 seconds to go and Leicester throwing in on halfway, they should get just that. The tension is palpable.

  • Just wide!

  • SPRATT TRY! 15-15! The door is flung fully open! Walker was the architect from his own half, sprinting through to allow Fotuali'i to find the replacement who finished well on the right. Massive kick from Biggar coming up from the touchline...

  • Flood misses the difficult conversion so the door is still open for an Ospreys victory. A sidenote is that Tuilagi is off the field with an ankle injury - worrying ahead of next weekend and also the Six Nations from a Leicester and England perspective.

  • MORRIS TRY! 10-15! TMO time as Allen's break to the right leads to Morris dotting down in the corner from Youngs' pass. Did he ground it? Replays say yes!

  • Unbelievable how a game can change in an instant. Flood and Leicester are now into their stride as the fly-half puts a ball into the corner for a pressure line-out throw from Baldwin. It isn't taken at the tail and that leads to Bearman grounding in-goal. Scrum five.

  • FLOOD CONVERSION! 10-10! We are level!

  • B YOUNGS TRY! 10-8! Oh what about this. Flood broke the line initially from 20 metres out and then from recycled ball his half-back partner darted over.

  • Toulouse have their fourth try so as it stands Leicester will need to win and deprive the French of any points at Welford Road next week. Tigers on the attack.

  • Off the post once again! More dropped points for Ospreys.

  • Still Toulouse are waiting on picking up their try bonus-point against Treviso as the Ospreys win a scrum penalty that would put Leicester out of losing bonus-point range. This Pool is that tight that we are looking a points in all forms that they appear.

  • An hour gone and still the defences are on top, this time Hibbard winning the breakdown penalty. However, that great work comes at a cost as the hooker leaves the field clutching his shoulder. Scott Baldwin is on while Leicester send on both of their props.

  • Thomas Waldrom is on for Crane as Leicester look for fresh legs. In fact though it is scrum-half Youngs making the ground here before prop Cole goes off his feet. It is delicately poised this one as the Ospreys now look to go through a rampaging Bevington.

  • The English survive again though as Hibbard's throw in the aftermath is not straight so it will be a scrum outside their own 22. Territory is vital as you would expect.

  • Leicester ball again on the home ten-metre but hang on a minute, Youngs' grubber through leads to Fussell's running gamble paying off as he breaks from his 22. The pass to Walker then sees him chip over before the ball ends up in touch eight out.

  • No, is the answer and in fact it is now Leicester on a sustained period of attacking rugby that was sparked by Tom Youngs. The England hooker's break from halfway was eventually brought to a halt by Fotuali'i but that's a moment to inspire the Tigers there.

  • Biggar will look for the corner here in what is a key moment in the game. Can the Ospreys get over for their second try here that would bring huge confidence?

  • Tigers go the aerial route now but that just coughs up possession before captain Deacon is penalised and then marched back another ten metres close to halfway.

  • Ospreys ball again here as they carry up to the 22 until Bearman makes his first mistake of the game, knocking on. That sight will delight the former champions.
