**The Guinness PRO14 returned with a bang at the weekend as one season seamlessly flowed into the next with fresh optimism and energy abundant across the board.** \n\nThe opening round of the 2020/21 season saw impressive victories for Ospreys, Connacht and Munster while Ulster and Cardiff Blues returned wins from their contests with Italian opponents and Leinster picked up where they left off. \n\nWith the first matches of the new campaign in the book, today’s Media Watch reflects on what we learned from everything we saw. \n\nWe start in Wales where **Ospreys** pulled off arguably the result of the round as they beat last season’s semi-finalists Edinburgh 25-10 in tricky conditions at BT Murrayfield. \n\nThe victory was Ospreys’ first on the road in 18 months and WalesOnline has analysed just how good they were. \n\nThey point to the physicality on display and the [efforts of three key men](https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/rugby/rugby-news/absolute-tank-who-helped-fire-19045929) as being pivotal, in Kieran Williams, Mat Protheroe and Morgan Morris.\n\nThere are two sides to every tale though and **Edinburgh** boss Richard Cockerill believes his side were sloppy and [“dropped too much ball”](https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/54391562) in the defeat.\n\nStaying in Scotland and there was further disappointment for the Scottish sides this weekend with **Glasgow Warriors** coming out on the losing end of a titanic battle with **Connacht** 28-24.
