Ospreys continued their fine league form with a 26-9 bonus points triumph over Connacht in the RaboDirect PRO12 at the Liberty Stadium.

Eli Walker, Justin Tipuric, Jonathan Thomas and Kahn Fotuali'i scored tries as Ospreys picked up a fourth straight win, while Connacht could only muster three Dan Park penalties.

The hosts enjoyed plenty of possession in the early stages and it was no surprise when Richard Fussell sent over Walker before Dan Biggar calmly converted to open up a 7-0 lead.

Connacht quickly cut the deficit to one point with Park twice splitting the posts, but the Welsh side ended the half on a high as full-back Fussell put Tipuric over in the right corner to establish a 12-6 cushion at the break.

The visitors were given more cause for concern after the restart with Thomas picking off Parks' pass and running in unopposed from 30 metres out, while a Park penalty was a brief response.

Walker tried to highlight Osprey's dominance in thrilling fashion as he burst out of his own 22, but the winger elected to pass at the wrong moment and Connacht cut out the danger.

Ospreys would not be denied and they bagged a bonus point with eight minutes left as Fotuali'i went over from a tapped penalty and Biggar's conversion sealed a comfortable win.
