Round 13 conjured more thrills and spills as Benetton continued their fine run of form and Ospreys edged out Welsh rivals Cardiff Blues.

There were plenty of sensational plays across the seven matches including a fine grubber, superb handling and yet more magnificence from Welsh international Dan Biggar.

Nick Grigg- Glasgow Warriors vs Zebre

Glasgow Warriors were made to work hard against Zebre but ultimately a man of the match performance from George Horne paved the way to a five-try triumph.

And it was their final try which firmly put the game beyond the Italians to ensure Dave Rennie’s men stay top of Conference A.

A smart grubber kick was hoovered up by centre Huw Jones who calmy offloaded into the hands of Nick Grigg who burst away from the Zebre defence to cross the whitewash.

Rhys Webb – Ospreys vs Cardiff Blues

An absorbing Welsh derby saw Ospreys get the better of the Cardiff Blues and that was down to the superb kicking prowess of Dan Biggar.

The Welsh fly-half made three tries at the Liberty Stadium including setting up Rhys Webb for his first try.

Biggar followed up his instinctive chip and chase over the defence with a sublime offload into the path of his compatriot who surged towards the line for a powerful score.

Rhys Jones – Scarlets vs Dragons

Scarlets ran in seven tries against the Dragons in a ruthlessly efficient display from the defending champions and it was Rhys Patchell who was at the heart of the resounding victory.

And the Welsh side saved their very best until last when the 65th minute Rhys Jones dotted down for his first of the evening.

Patient build-up and some superb Scarlets handling saw the ball come to Patchell who produced a brilliant offload in the free-flowing move which allowed Jones the freedom of Parc y Scarlets to dot down.
