Williams stars in Ospreys triumph

PA Sport

Retiring winger Shane Williams had the final say once again in a match billed as his farewell to the Liberty Stadium as the Ospreys took another step towards a home tie in the RaboDirect PRO12 play-offs with a 31-12 victory over Dragons.

Just as he had done on his international swansong, Williams delivered a dazzling last-gasp try as the Swansea-based region claimed a bonus-point win to confirm their place in the end-of-season shoot-out.

After a storming start, the home side made hard work of putting away a gutsy Dragons side, scoring four tries in all - two of which were penalty tries from their much-vaunted scrum following Ryan Jones' 20th-minute score. The hosts' other points all came from the boot of fly-half Dan Biggar, with four penalties from Dragons number 10 Lewis Robling all the visitors could muster.
