Ospreys started their Heineken Cup season with a comfortable 38-17 home bonus point victory over Italian side Treviso in Swansea on Friday.

The Ospreys waited until the death to score the bonus point try as Ashley Beck went over in the last minute of the match.

Eli Walker and Hanno Dirksen, with a brace, scored tries, with fly-half Dan Biggar kicking 18 points at Swansea's Liberty Stadium. Treviso scored two tries through Manoa Vosawai and Luke McLean.

The win was sweet revenge for Ospreys, who had lost 12-6 to the same opponents in the Celtic League earlier this season.
