RaboDirect Pro12: Edinburgh record comeback win
Last Updated: 23/11/12 9:52pm
Edinburgh recorded only their third RaboDirect Pro12 triumph of the season with a 23-13 victory over the Ospreys at Murrayfield.
The Welsh region took a 13-8 lead into the break with Matthew Morgan scoring all of their points, before the Scots responded in the second half.
They dominated for long periods and Gregor Hunter added five penalties to one before the interval and a WP Nel try to give the hosts victory.
With both teams missing a number of internationals it was no surprise to see the game start in scrappy fashion.
Morgan's interception was the only action of note in the opening exchanges before the visiting stand-off edged them ahead after 16 minutes.
Hunter levelled the scores soon after with a penalty, but the Welsh region's fly-half kicked a second from the tee to restore their advantage.
Despite controlling the majority of the first half, the Ospreys were punished when the hosts' first real try-scoring opportunity ended in Nel touching down.
Dougie Fife made the initial break before good hands from Richie Rees and Hunter sent the prop over.
Edinburgh's lead didn't last for long as Morgan crossed the whitewash after a spell of pressure to give them a deserved half-time lead.
Visiting prop Owen Williams was sin-binned at the start of the second period and Hunter added two three-pointers during that time to take the Scottish outfit ahead.
Further penalties from the home side's fly-half extended that advantage to 20-13 and Hunter sealed the win with a last minute kick from the tee.
