Ospreys got lucky – Biggar

Date published: December 28 2014

Ospreys fly-half Dan Biggar admits his side got away with a poor second-half performance as they edged the Scarlets 17-15 in Swansea.

The Guinness Pro12 leaders looked to be in control when they led 17-9 at the break, but they failed to score a point in the second half.

Steve Shingler kicked two penalties in the second half for the visitors, but they couldn’t find the score they needed to take the lead, despite a dangerous scrum in the closing stages that went unrewarded by referee Marius Mitrea.

“We’re very lucky to get out of jail,” said Biggar.

“There’s frustration and disappointment.

“First things first, we’re delighted to have won the game, but we haven’t played as poorly as we did in that second half for a while. We’re hugely disappointed.

“We allowed the Scarlets to come into our half and put us under pressure at the set-piece.

“So it’s an apology from us, really, because that second half was as poor as we’ve played in a long time.”
