The Ospreys’ form has deserted them with five defeats in their last six games, so much so that from leading the table they ultimately squeezed into the playoffs with a point to spare, and, of course, no away team has been able to buy a win in the semi-finals of the Guinness Pro12.
Including the competition’s first two years, and since the return of the playoffs in 2009-10, there have been 18 semi-finals and the home side has won all of them.
