Racing overpower Ospreys to stay in charge of Pool 4

Racing 92 continue to set the pace at the top of Heineken Champions Cup Pool 4 with a 40-19 victory over the winless Ospreys in Swansea.

The home side were up against it from the outset as full-back Dan Evans was sent off after just 37 seconds when he defused a high ball but was adjudged to have kicked out as he landed catching a Racing opponent in the face.

Despite the setback Ospreys hit back for winger Hanno Dirksen to finish strongly wide out and Marty McKenzie converted.

But Racing took charge as a yellow card for Scott Williams gave the visitors fresh impetus and they quickly took advantage as a driving maul allowed hooker Teddy Baubigny to power over.

Two tries in a four minute spell through winger Teddy Thomas, from a well-judged Finn Russell chip to the corner, and a penalty try which resulted in Aled Davies being yellow-carded saw Racing take charge.

Thomas added his second touchdown on the half-hour after some stunning approach work and with Maxime Machenaud converting Racing led 28-7 at the break.

Replacement Yoan Tanga Mangene and skipper Henry Chavancy added further tries after the break to help the visitors keep control despite a brave response from the Ospreys.

Tongan prop Ma’afu Fia and Davies tries made sure Racing could not afford to relax but they were too strong on the night.

The sides do battle again in Paris next Friday evening.
