LionsWatch: No stopping electric Giles

Keelan Giles has certainly made his mark since getting his opportunity for the Ospreys and the teenage sensation extended his try-scoring streak with a double against the Dragons in a 35-17 success.

The 18-year-old scored five tries in two European outings for the Ospreys and followed that up with a treble in the Welsh derby victory at the Liberty Stadium.

With eight tries in four games, it’s little surprise that Giles was invited to join the Wales squad as they prepare for the Autumn Internationals during the week.

Electric throughout the game, Giles pounced twice in the second half, first combining with Josh Matavesi to power over on 44 minutes and stretch the home lead to 21-3.

He then wrapped up the bonus point just before the hour, showing his scorching pace to reach a loose ball, kick it forward and dive over.

Just before the break it was Wales hooker Scott Baldwin who was the beneficiary of a powerful rolling maul, dotting down to give the Ospreys a 14-3 lead, and from there they never looked back.
