Ospreys into EDF Energy Semi finals

The Ospreys secured a EDF Energy Cup semi-finals place against Saracens after beating Harlequins. Gavin Henson was the hero of he day for the Ospreys scoring all of their points.


Four penalties, a try and a conversion added up to 19 points for Henson, playing at fly-half in James Hook’s absence due to injury, who’s side led 3-6 at the break. It wasn’t all good news for Henson though as he was one of three in the sin bin at the end of the first half.


Harlequins have themselves to blame for the loss and should have capitalised on the numbers advantage when the Ospreys had prop Paul James, full-back Lee Byrne and fly-half Henson in the sin bin.
