**This weekend’s Guinness PRO14 action will get underway in Swansea on Sunday afternoon, as Ospreys welcome Benetton with both sides eager to get back to winning ways in the competition.** \u2028\n\nThe hosts go into this one off the back of three defeats, including back to back losses against Munster and Leinster, while the visitors have yet to taste victory from their four matches this season.\u2028\n\nThat said, this promises to be a frantic occasion in South Wales, with both sides showing glimpses of quality in the past few weeks, and it’s only a matter of time before results start to go their way. \u2028\n\n**What’s at stake**\n\nWe may be in the early stages of the season, but getting the victory in this match could be crucial for either side’s chances of building momentum ahead of a busy festive period. \n\nToby Booth’s side sit third in Conference A heading into the weekend - albeit having played more games than a lot of their rivals - in what looks like a race for third after the rampaging form of both Leinster and Ulster at the top of the table.\u2028\n\nWith no victories to their name, it is no surprise that Benetton sit bottom of Conference B, and will have some work to do to get themselves back into contention, with the competition looking as fierce as ever in the hunt for the top three. \u2028\n\n**What happened last time they met**\n\nSam Parry was the story of the show the last time these two went head-to-head in October 2019, with the hooker helping himself to hat-trick in a 24-20 victory for the Welsh side. \n\nThings started to unravel for Benetton right from the off in this one, with Marco Lazzaroni shown the red card for a dangerous tackle on Luke Price just 12 minutes in, and from then it was always going to be an uphill battle for the visitors. \n\nParry had already notched his first before Lazzaroni’s ill-discipline. He bundled over again midway through the first half to extend the hosts’ advantage, before Scott Williams went over in the corner on the half hour. \u2028\n\nThat made it 17-6 at the break, and Parry grabbed his third just minutes after the restart to seemingly put the game to bed, before a late resurgence from the Italians late on made it a shaky last few minutes. \n\nAntonio Rizzi latched onto an overthrown lineout to bag Benetton’s first with five minutes to play, before Leonardo Sarto touched down after the full-time hooter, but it was too little too late to salvage the points. \u2028\n\nIt would be a rare high point for the Welsh side in the last campaign, as they went on to lose the next 13 consecutive matches in all competitions, claiming just two Guinness PRO14 victories all season.
