Ospreys secured a comfortable win over the South African Emirates Lions in Swansea and duly reclaimed a spot in the United Rugby Championship play-offs.

The home side started strong with Tom Botha and Sam Parry crossing for tries in the first half. Ospreys continued their dominance after the break, with Morgan Morris and Lewis Lloyd adding more points to secure a bonus point.

Although Lions fought back with tries from PJ Botha, Quan Horn, and Richard Kriel, it was not enough to match Ospreys’ performance, as Keiran Williams sealed the victory with a late fifth try.
