SCARLETS TOO GOOD FOR RIVALS CARDIFF BLUES
PRO14 REPORT: SCARLETS EXTENDED THEIR UNBEATEN HOME RUN IN THE PRO14 WITH A 30-17 BONUS POINT VICTORY OVER CARDIFF BLUES AT PARC Y SCARLETS ON SATURDAY.
The Conference B leaders have won every league game at home since the opening weekend of last season but they were made to work hard for their derby victory.
First-half tries from Hadleigh Parkes and Ryan Elias were cancelled out by scores from Willis Halaholo and Lloyd Williams, on his 150th appearance for the Blues.
But Scarlets’ tries from Jonathan Evans and Steff Evans in the final 20 minutes of the match gave them a hard-fought bonus point victory.
Leigh Halfpenny and Jarrod Evans exchanged early penalties before Hadleigh Parkes waltzed through the Blues defence to score the opening try of the match.
Halfpenny extended the home side’s lead with a second penalty before the visitors saw No.8 Nick Williams sent to the sin bin for ten minutes.
