Champions Cup Qualification Playoff

Ospreys became the big winners in this Welsh derby as they claimed a Champions Cup playoff spot while Scarlets fail to reach the Champions Cup for the first time in the professional era.

Ospreys came out firing with George North getting put into space out wide to score one of the easiest tries in his career inside the first 10 minutes.

Olly Cracknell extended Ospreys lead after a poor clearance by Johnny McNicholl and a superb counter by Dan Evans.

Scarlets narrowed the gap before the break after Hanno Dirksen was sent to the sin bin before Jonathan Davies powered over the line. Dirksen returned to score with 10 minute left in the game to seal the result for Ospreys.
