Goodnight

So that's it from us. A great night for three of the Welsh rugby regions! Ospreys boost their chances of a home Pro12 semi-final with tonight's win over Glasgow.

Newport Gwent Dragons gain revenge for their European Challenge Cup semi-final defeat with a home win over Edinburgh. It was even a good night for a Welsh side not in action - Scarlets.

Tonight's victory for the Gwent side means that if Scarlets secure a bonus-point win over Cardiff Blues on Sunday, the Llanelli-based region will seal automatic European qualification.

Nos da!

Well that was quite something from Ospreys, knocking Glasgow off the top of the Pro12 table.

Rob Dobbs tweets: "Great win for the Ospreys! C'mon!"

Joshua Crisp adds: "Awesome performance by Ospreys. Best region in Wales for a reason. Some fantastic players!"

Lize Xia is still raving about that Rhys Webb try: "Love the cheeky line out. Great win #Ospreys!!"

And let's not forget Dragons - "A good night for Welsh rugby!", says Rhys Norville. Spot on.

We were pretty fortunate a couple of things came off, but we knew if we stayed in the attacking third that we'd get something.

Home boost

Tonight's win puts Ospreys in a great position to seal a home semi-final in the Pro12 play-offs. To put the importance of this into perspective, no side has ever won a last four Pro12 play-off match away from home. Beat Connacht away in Galway and Ospreys will get that home draw.

Ospreys man of the match Josh Matavesi

It was really tough, we knew what Glasgow were going to bring but we dug in well and showed some character.

It's all about winning rugby now, it doesn't matter by how much.

Jonathan Davies

Former Wales fly-half on Scrum V

Two lovely tries took the game away from Glasgow.

That's a big, big result for Ospreys and sets them up for the end of the season.

Dafydd James

Former Wales and Lions wing

Dragons fully deserved it. There was only one team at the races.

They've redeemed themselves after that bitterly disappointing defeat in the European Challenge Cup semi-final.

Full-time

Ospreys 21-10 Glasgow

FT
BBC Sport

A great win for Ospreys which sees them move above Glasgow to top the Pro12 for now. Both sides complete their league fixtures on Saturday 16 May, with the Welsh region away to Connacht, while Gregor Townsend's side host Ulster. The result also means that Steve Tandy's side maintain their unbeaten home record in the competition in 2014-15.

Full Time: Dragons 19-5 Edinburgh

Dragons players and fans had spoken before this match about wanting to avenge that European Challenge Cup semi-final thrashing by Edinburgh - and they did so with relative ease.

They put the Scots under pressure for long periods and defended stoutly whenever the visitors mounted their rare attacks.

Scarlets will be delighted too, as this is a major blow for Edinburgh's hopes of finishing in sixth place in the Pro12 table, the last of the automatic Champions Cup qualifying spots.

Man of the Match

Ospreys - Josh Matavesi

Try - Dragons 16-5 Edinburgh (Stuart McInally)

Edinburgh have a glimmer of hope as captain Stuart McInally plunges over from close range.

But with Tom Heatchote missing his conversion, it's a tall order for the Scots to come back.

Dragons 16-0 Edinburgh

As we enter the last five minutes or so - and perhaps a bit of stoppage time - the Dragons crowd are really getting behind their side.

Cries of 'Stand up for the men of Gwent' ring around Rodney Parade as Dragons players tackle themselves to a standstill to repel Edinburgh, who have still not scored a point this evening.

If the hosts can keep this up, you might even hear some Scarlets fans joining in with the Gwent-themed chants.

The rain is really lashing down now at the Liberty Stadium and handling errors are creeping into the match as a result. Can Ospreys make the most of a Glasgow spill from an attacking scrum in the visitors' 22? Yes! Glasgow are penalised and Dan Biggar slots over the penalty from in front of the posts.

Dragons 16-0 Edinburgh

Edinburgh seem determined to make this a nervous finale for Dragons as they take the ball into the hosts' 22.

Yet again, however, the Scots' handling lets them down as another pass goes to ground and Dragons have a scrum.

Rhys Webb - Welsh wizard

The Ospreys scrum-half has scored 10 tries in 11 Pro12 starts...

Rhys Webb
Huw Evans picture agency

Could he be Wales' main man at September's Rugby World Cup?

Gareth Davies thinks so: "Best nine around at the moment! Wales' key player at RWC!"

Daniel Jenkins says: "Rhys Webb is some player when he's got some confidence! #tryscoringmachine"

Dale Riley adds: "He is such a talented player, makes it all look so easy."

Sam Parry on for hooker Scott Baldwin

Lucky bounce

Ospreys 18-10 Glasgow

Ospreys nearly make the most of a lucky bounce from Rhys Webb's kick. The ball evades Nikola Matawalu, Dan Biggar runs down the line but his pass fails to find Josh Matavesi who has three Glasgow defenders around him. Referee George Clancy has referred it to the TMO to see if there's an early tackle on Matavesi.

After a long look Mr Clancy and Derek Bevan decides there wasn't!!!

Jonathan Davies

Former Wales fly-half on Scrum V

Ospreys need to keep switched on now.

Glasgow are a very capable side and can score a couple of tries very quickly.

No one wants to be travelling away in the play-offs. Home advantage is massive.

What a response by Glasgow. The Scottish side's pack drive over from an attacking lineout with Chris Fusaro at the bottom of the pile and Duncan Weir adds the extras. Game on?

Dragons 16-0 Edinburgh

Dragons are camped inside Edinburgh's half again, and the Rodney Parade faithful are beginning to sense a win is on the cards.

Prop Phil Price has come on for Boris Stankovich, whose industrious display earned him hearty chants of 'Boris! Boris!' from the Dragons fans as he left the field.

Jonathan Davies

Former Wales fly-half on Scrum V

That's a brilliant, brilliant try from Ospreys. Very well worked.

Rhys Webb's confidence is soaring. That is a player on top of his game to chip from that position. He's had a massive season.

It's a long way back now for Glasgow.

Get involved via #ScrumV

There's plenty of love for the Ospreys on social media...

Gavin Brance tweets: "Rhys Webb has been unreal this season, what a player."

Rhian adds: "Oh how I've missed watching the Ospreys play! It's been a while!"

Darryl Lacey on Ben John's score: "Great play, great hands, great support, great try!"

Converted try - Rhys Webb, con Dan Biggar

Ospreys 18-3 Glasgow

Rhys Webb
BBC Sport

Scrum-half Rhys Webb scores a spectacular individual try. He slices through the Glasgow defence from an attacking lineout before gathering his chip over the last defender Nikola Matawalu, to dive over for his 10th Pro12 try of the season. Dan Biggar adds the conversion.

Edinburgh resilience

Edinburgh may be down to 14 men with Willem Nel in the sin bin, but they've made their way into the Dragons' 22 and, were it not for a knock-on, they might have scored their first points of the evening.

As it is, that handling error has given the Dragons fans the chance to bellow their favourite chant 'He's knocked it on' to the tune of French national anthem Le Marseilles.

Missed penalty

Ospreys 11-3 Glasgow

Duncan Weir
BBC Sport

A shocking miss by Glasgow's Duncan Weir who hits the post from close range. Could that prove crucial?

Replacements

Glasgow

Ryan Wilson on for Josh Strauss

Fraser Brown on for Pat MacCarthur

Jonathan Davies

Former Wales fly-half on Scrum V

I thought Ospreys had blown it with the two on one but that was a great inside ball from Matavesi and it was a very good finish.

Dafydd James

Former Wales and Lions wing

It's a great opportunity for Dragons. They were seething after that Challenge Cup semi-final defeat, but they're putting Edinburgh to the sword here.

Converted Try Dragons 16-0 Edinburgh

We mentioned in the first half how the Dragons' rolling maul has been a weapon this season - and so it has proved once again.

Jason Tovey
Huw Evans Agency
Jason Tovey adds the extras

With Edinburgh prop Willem Nel in the bin, Dragons took full advantage to send replacement hooker Hugh Gustafson barging over for a try converted by Jason Tovey.

Try - Ben John

Ospreys 11-3 Glasgow

Try!
BBC Sport

At last the breakthrough comes! A well worked try. The ball is spread wide to Josh Matavesi who manages to get a pass away to Ben John despite having three Glasgow defenders around him. John makes no mistake crashing over from close range. Dan Biggar misses the conversion.

Jonathan Davies

Former Wales fly-half on Scrum V

That's all Ospreys need to do. Get good ball and good positions.

Conditions are worsening. It's not going to be classic, it's going to be tight.

Build the pressure and just keep the scoreboard ticking over.

Missed drop-goal

That is a poor miss from Jason Tovey. Dragons put Edinburgh under pressure once again, carrying the ball strongly and recycling the ball quickly.

Fly-half Tovey was then left with a seemingly simple drop-goal attempt, in front of the posts and just 20 metres out, but his attempt drifted wide.

Dragons 9-0 Edinburgh

If anyone is going to light this game up, it's going to be Dragons wing Hallam Amos.

The young Welsh international has sparked the hosts into life early in the second half with a neat chip and chase which has set Dragons up for an assault on the Edinburgh line.

Penalty

Ospreys 6-3 Glasgow

Dan Biggar
BBC Sport

Glasgow second row Jonny Gray is penalised for illegally handling the ball and Dan Biggar fires the Ospreys in front as the rain lashes down at the Liberty Stadium.

Replacement

Ospreys prop Dimitri Arhip is on for Aaron Jarvis

Second half under way

The second half has started at Rodney Parade. Dragons fans - and Scarlets supporters, of course - will have their fingers crossed the Gwent region can hold on to their lead.

Dave Roberts has emailed us: "Enjoying the game but on the Dan Biggar TMO [decision] - the ref asked "any reason I cannot award a try". Is "inconclusive" a reason? If he'd said try / no try [I'd] fully understand but it seems the questions are now being merged into just passing the decision?"

Anyone else think there are issues with video referrals in rugby? On another note, which way is this Ospreys game going to go? And how about Dragons, are they creeping to victory against Edinburgh?

Kick-off

Ospreys 3-3 Glasgow

Dan Biggar gets the second half under way.

Ospreys and Wales points machine

Ospreys have won four and drawn one in the Pro12 since their loss away against tonight's opponents Glasgow in February. The Welsh region were without many of their Wales internationals for that match including fly-half Dan Biggar. He went close in the first-half can he make the difference as both sides take to the field?

It's pretty attritional. We probably feel we're just edging it but when we're in the attacking third we're just coughing it up a bit.

It's essentially 0-0.
