Ulster 27 - 38 Ospreys: High-flying Ospreys seal European spot

THE Ospreys moved into second place in the Magners League and made sure of Heineken Cup qualification thanks to their bonus-point win at Ulster last night.

Shane Williams squeezed over for the opening try in the corner but Scotland international Simon Danielli touched down for the province. James Hook ran on to a Dan Bigger chip but Andrew Trimble's score put Ulster 18-12 ahead at the break.

Hook charged down Niall O'Connor's kick for his second try and former Ulster player Tommy Bowe got a try near the end.

The Ulster match was the postponed game in hand that the Ospreys had on all the sides above them except Leinster.
