Scarlets ran in five tries on their way to beat Cardiff Blues 32-12 on Saturday in Wales.

It was a dream start for their new coach Glenn Delaney and he would be a happy man today after a great performance from his team.

Scarlets punished the Blues for some poor play and the only light for them in the game was Adams getting a try in his first start since his surgery.

The first try came from Kennedy after Evans ran some great lines to get through the defence. Halfpenny converted the try and got a penalty over a few minutes later.

At halftime they were leading 15-7. The second half belong to Scarlets. Evans kicked ahead to score just before the Blues got Turnbull send the the bin.

Two tries ended it for the Blues challenge with first Lousi going over and then McNicholl. Morgan scored a late try for the Blues to put some kind of a smile back on their fans faces.

Scorers:

Scarlets – Tries: Kennedy, Evans(2), Lousi, McNicholl Conversions: Halfpenny(2) Penalties: Halfpenny

Blues – Tries: Adams, Morgan Conversions: Evans

 

 

 

Leinster had to work hard to get a win over arch rivals Munster on Saturday with a 27-25 win in a match that went down to the wire.

Munster showed great character fighting back from 24-13 against the defending champions. They had a chance to take the win but and intercept by Toner on Leinster line gave the champions the chance to hold on to the win.

Six tries in the match and end to end stuff which would have kept both supporters on the edge off the living room couches.

It was Munster that open the scoring with Conway going over before Leinster hit back with tries from Cian Healy, Garry Ringrose and James Lowe saw Leinster to pull clear.

Earls and Conway gave hope to Munster in the second half but they just could not pull it through at the end.

This means they still have some work to do in Conference B before they can book a place in the semi-finals.

Scorers:

Leinster – Tries: Healy, Ringrose, Lowe Conversions: Sexton(3) Penalties: Sexton, Byrne

Munster – Tries: Earls, Conway(2) Conversions: Hanrahan(2)
