A round-up of the day's action in the Magners League with in-form Ospreys rising up the table with victory over Glasgow Warriors.

Ospreys 37-6 Glasgow Warriors

Ospreys secured their second consecutive Magners League bonus-point victory with an impressive 37-6 triumph against Glasgow at the Liberty Stadium.

The five tries to nil win saw the Welsh region reclaim second place in the table, following up their win over Connacht the previous weekend.

A penalty try and a try for fly-half Dan Biggar, part of his 17-point haul, were followed in the second half by Tom Smith, Ashley Beck and Jerry Collins.

Munster 38-17 Newport Gwent Dragons

Munster continued their charge towards a home Magners League semi-final as they ran in five tries in a 38-17 win over Newport Gwent Dragons in Cork.

Penalties from Paul Warwick and Jason Tovey were the only scores until Doug Howlett blitzed through for a brace of tries, handing Munster an 18-9 half-time advantage.

Steve Jones touched down for the Dragons, but tries from man of the match Mick O'Driscoll, Johne Murphy and Alan Quinlan made certain of the bonus point for Munster.
