The Ospreys kept alive their hopes of reaching the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup with a six-try 44-17 romp against Treviso at the Liberty Stadium.

The hosts had secured the bonus point after just six minutes of the second half as a penalty try added to Ashley Beck's first-half brace and Tommy Bowe's interception score, with replacement Kahn Fotuali'i and a second penalty try completing the scoring as fly-half Dan Biggar kicked 12 points.

Edoardo Gori's opportunistic score had kept Treviso in the game before the break, and lock Gonzalo Padro added a second-half try with fly-half Kristopher Burton contributing both conversions and a penalty.

While the win keeps the Ospreys in the hunt for Pool Five qualification they are likely to need a bonus-point win in Biarritz in their final game, and other results to go their way, to have any hope of progressing.
