SCARLETS managed to hold off their Welsh rivals Ospreys in a tense and fiery local derby at Parc Y Scarlets on Saturday (Oct 6).
Tries from Johnny McNicholl and Rhys Patchell along with 10 points from the boot of Leigh Halfpenny was enough for Scarlets to claim the victory.
Ospreys scored three tries from Cory Allen, former Scarlet George North and Luke Morgan with Sam Davies converting one.
Final score: Scarlets 20 – 17 Ospreys
Man of the match: Kieron Fonotia (Scarlets)
The Scarlets will now turn their attention to the European Rugby Champions Cup when they welcome last year’s runners up Racing 92 to Llanelli next Saturday (Oct 13).
