Ospreys snatch victory from Harlequins at the death

first_imgSunday Oct 5, 2008 Ospreys snatch victory from Harlequins at the death The Ospreys narrowly avoided what would have been a surprise home defeat to Harlequins in the EDF Energy Cup match at Liberty Stadium on Sunday. A late try from Tommy Bowe, followed by a crucial conversion from James Hook, was the difference between the two sides in the end.Ospreys coach Sean Holley admitted there were a few bruised egos as the star studded side snatched victory by 24-23 as Hooks injury-time conversion flew through the uprights.Harlequins, who were missing several key Guinness Premiership starters, were dejected at the final whistle after having done so well to comeback from being 14-3 down to outscore Ospreys Ospreys 20-10 in the second half. And with a few minutes in the match left, it looked like the celebrations would be theirs.“It was a classic get out of jail situation, said Holley.It was a bit too close for comfort. Quins deserve a lot of credit – they were very tenacious – and there are clearly elements of the game for us to work on.“Perhaps everyone in the world, except the 22 guys in the Quins dressing room, expected a 50-pointer. We are making no excuses. We were really tested, but apart from an injury to Sonny Parker, there were no other problems, just a few bruised egos.”Bowes late try meant that they were one behind, with the conversion to come from Hook, who had been struggling with his kicking all match.
