SCARLETS centre Jonathan Davies scored two tries on his return from injury to help his side to a comfortable 54 – 14 victory over the Southern Kings at Parc Y Scarlets on Saturday (Sep 30).
The Wales and Lions international made his first appearance in 11 months and made an immediate impact scoring 2 of his sides 8 tries in the first 25 minutes.
The other home tries came from Paul Asquith, Ioan Nicholas, Dan Davis, Simon Gardiner, Steff Evans and Kieran Hardy, outside-half Rhys Patchell scored 10 points with the boot.
For the visitors left wing Bjorn Basson touched down twice in the first half with Banda Masixole converting both.
Man of the match Davies looked dangerous throughout the match, with his ball carrying and handling skills on point, he went over in the left corner to score the opening try of the match.
A few minutes later centre Asquith found a gap in the visitors defence to cross over.
The Kings responded well with Basson scoring the first of his brace but Davies was on point once again when he rolled over the line and touched down under the posts.
Basson scored his second try shortly afterwards to keep his side without touching distance but the second half was all one way traffic.
Nicholas showed a clean pair of heels to dive over in the left corner to widen his sides lead.
Flanker Davis was next to score and soon afterwards replacement prop Gardiner was awarded a try following a TMO decision.
Wales international Evans came off the bench to run unopposed for his sides seventh try of the evening.
The final try came from replacement scrum-half Kieran Hardy who managed to gather the loose ball and dive over. Angus O’Brien converted the final two tries.
Final score: Scarlets 54 – 14 Southern Kings
Man of the match: Jonathan Davies (Scarlets)
The Scarlets will now welcome fellow Welsh region Ospreys to Parc Y Scarlets in a mouth watering clash next Saturday (Oct 6).
