SCARLETS 10 GLASGOW 46

Fly-half Finn Russell and wing Lee Jones crossed twice each as Glasgow extended their winning run to eight Guinness Pro12 games with a seven-try, 46-10 hammering of Scarlets at Parc y Scarlets.

Glasgow moved up to second place in the Pro12 table with this comprehensive win while Scarlets, who had to deal with 20 players being struck down with a stomach bug in midweek, slipped out of the play-off places with Ulster winning at Zebre.

Russell provided a personal tally of 21 points with two tries, a penalty and and four conversions while Jones (two), scrum-half Henry Pyrgos, centre Mark Bennett and Tommy Seymour got the other tries.

Wales full-back Liam Williams, who returned for only his second game of the season, scored Scarlets’ only try, with Steven Shingler kicking a penalty and a conversion.

Defending champions Glasgow were able to name an all international squad of 23 and they deserved their 20-10 interval lead having been on the front foot for most of the half, scoring three tries to Scarlets’ one.
