Scarlets 28 Edinburgh 8
Edinburgh prop Michele Rizzo was sent off as Scarlets sealed a bonus-point victory over Edinburgh at Parc y Scarlets.
Rizzo saw red from Irish referee John Lacey in the 46th minute after he smashed Scarlets scrumhalf Gareth Davies’s head at a ruck. That was the turning point in the contest which the home side won four tries to one.
Scarlets’ tries came from Rhys Patchell, Gareth Davies, Werner Kruger and Aaron Shingler, with Leigh Halfpenny kicking all four conversions. Jason Harries scored Edinburgh’s only try, with Duncan Weir adding a penalty.
