**Ospreys turned around a horrible run of recent form with a hard-fought and incredibly dramatic win against second-placed Conference A rivals Ulster.**\n\nWith Storm Dennis in full swing coast to coast rugby was not the order of the day, but both Ospreys and Ulster played the conditions well in an intensely-contested six-try spectacle.\n\n# **Key Moments**\n\nIt was Ospreys who were first on the board, with Luke Price slotting a penalty after four minutes to open the scoring, but Ulster were quick to respond.\n\nWith a point to prove, Irish international Stuart McCloskey made a barging run, offloading to in-form winger Robert Baloucoune for the try, with Billy Burns adding the extras.\n\nJust five minutes later another international centre out to impress - Owen Watkin - hit a good line in close quarters, stepping the man and slipping and sliding in under the posts for his first Guinness PRO14 try in nearly four years.\n\nPrice’s conversion was good, seeing the home side take the advantage back, score 10-7 to the hosts on 16 minutes.\n\nScott Otten added to the tally just ten minutes later from the back of a driving maul following a TMO decision. Price missed the conversion from wide, taking the score to 15-7.\n\nHowever, the fly-half made up for his miss just four minutes later, extending the home side’s lead to 19-7 on 29 minutes.\n\nUlster stayed very much in the game and cut the deficit to nine points at half-time via the boot of Billy Burns.\n\nFollowing the break Ospreys seemed galvanised and seven minutes in Otten bagged his second of the night as almost the whole team committed to the driving maul. With Price’s kick the Ospreys were now out to a 23-10 lead.\n\nPatience was required and patient Ulster were, as the forwards created the space for full-back Matt Faddes to cross out wide. Replacement fly-half Bill Johnston added the extras and Ulster were now within six points of the hosts.\n\nOn 67 minutes Ulster were rewarded once more as Johnston dinked the ball out wide to the waiting McCloskey who just had to dot it down. Johnston’s extras saw Ulster lead for the first time in the game – 24-23.\n\nIt was Price and Ospreys who were to have the last say though, as the fly-half nailed a penalty from 35 metres out in what was the final score of the game – relief at the Liberty Stadium at last.\n\n# **Play of the day**\n\nIf conditions were to blame for the slugfest that was the Calcutta Cup, Ospreys and Ulster were having none of Storm Dennis with plenty of ambitious play.\n\nThere were many moments of excitement in this six-try affair, but the standout moment had to be the charge down of Bill Johnston.\n\nLine-speed, commitment and elation for fans after what has been a tough season on and off the field so far in Ospreylia.\n\n# **Man of the Match**\n\nDan Lydiate was all over the field, making a nuisance of himself at the breakdown and putting in a lot of work on the floor.\n\nWith many on-field leaders away with Wales, he stepped up and showed his class and experience in spades.
