What a try.
Ospreys made a flying start on their Challenge Cup debut with a bonus-point victory over a much-changed Newcastle Falcons.
Wales scrum-half Rhys Webb created a try for Dan Biggar and scored one himself, before Ashley Beck made it 19-0 to the hosts at half-time.
Scott Baldwin got the vital fourth try, with Justin Tipuric scoring a brilliant solo try and Keelan Giles grabbing two.
Tipuric was also awarded man of the match for his performance but we cannot get over just how good his individual effort was. The Wales flanker caught the ball inside his own half, took off with blistering pace before chipping over a hapless defender and catching the ball beautifully on the bounce.
No doubt one of the tries of the season. Is Tipuric a contender for the Lions? Judging on his performance last night, the 2013 tourist will be right up there come selection next year.
