Travelling happy

So it ended

Cardiff Blues 23-31 Ospreys and
Dragons 10-29 Scarlets.

West is best was the favourite refrain of the late Llanelli, Wales and British and Irish Lions centre Ray Gravell.

You can argue whether Swansea is actually in west Wales, but the fictional land of Ospreylia is definitely west of Cardiff and the Scarlets are bona-fide West Walians who play in the county of Camarthenshire.

Either way, the coaches and cars travelling back down the M4 will be full of the happier fans after Judgement Day.

Gareth Llewellyn

Former Wales captain on BBC Radio Wales

"The Judgement has been that west is best.

"Ospreys secure a semi-final place and Scarlets have their own destiny in their hands as they chase European qualification.

"Fully deserved from the Scarlets, they looked very comfortable ball-in-hand."

FULL-TIME: Dragons 10-29 Scarlets

And that's it. Dragons finish the match in the Scarlets' 22, but concede a penalty and Steve Shingler kicks the ball into touch to bring down the the final curtain on Judgement Day III.

That is an important result for the Scarlets who are in the mix for sixth place and an automatic place in the European Champions' Cup next season.

It lifts them above Connacht and Edinburgh with two matches left to play.

Dragons can't buy a try

A superb flowing move sees Dorian Jones sent over on the left wing, but he drops the ball over the line under pressure from Scarlets flanker James Davies.

Liam Williams man of the match

Former Wales captain Gwyn Jones names Scarlets full-back Liam Williams man of the match.

No argument there - he is a class act.

Try review - Liam Williams

Liam Williams goes for his second try but is robbed by Hallam Amos as he tries to touch the ball down. No try.

Another near thing

Tyler Morgan kicks over the top bug the ball just goes out of play before the impressive Dragons centre can touch the ball down.

Te little things are not going the Dragons' way .

Scarlets fly-half Rhys Priestland is hurt in the move and is replaced by Steven Shingler.

That Ken Owens collision

This will certainly be a talking point. We've just received this picture of Scarlets' Ken Owens colliding with ref George Clancy before Owens went over for their first try.

Dafydd Pritchard

BBC Wales Sport at the Millennium Stadium

"The sight of white flags being waved at Spanish football matches is a common one - the fans' expression of surrender.

"There hasn't been quite the same sense of resignation among Newport Gwent Dragons supporters at the Millennium Stadium, but a few have thrown some paper aeroplanes towards the pitch.

"Their side are being outplayed by Scarlets, and this might be the Rodney Parade faithful's way of showing they've had enough."

A family business

The arrival of Luke Jones at scrum-half for the Dragons means the Dragons half-backs are both sons of members of the coaching team.

His father is director of rugby Lyn Jones and as we've already mentioned, Dorian Jones is coach Kingsley Jones' boy.

The question is why the sons of two former Wales international flankers are playing half-back?

With nothing controversial happening on the pitch, the conversation has opened up a bit. Here are some of our favourites:

David Evans: Today's attendance over 52,000. Guy behind me says... "Nice that over half a million have attended".

Paul Jones: Paper airplanes currently getting more cheers than rugby.

Owain Thorngate: Liam Williams needs to be in the starting 15 in the world cup, with Halfpenny on the wing. First instinct is to attack.

Rob Prosser: Wynne Evans, Bargoed FC go 23 games unbeaten then you lot turn up and we lose! Always welcome though.

Eek. Sorry about that, Rob. If it's any consolation, we could probably send Wynne Evans to your league rivals, although you've already secured the title.

Close call

And is if to answer the previous point, the Dragons attack brilliantly down the right hand touchline but Tom Prydie's cross-field kick is just a little too strong for the rapidly supporting players and the Scarlets can clear.

The kick was a good idea, but the bounce favoured the defence.

Classy Scarlets

It's difficult to see how the Dragons can get back into this now.

Scarlets are well on top and are able to bring on a Wales international at scrum-half in the shape of Rhodri Williams and a class act like Regan King in the centre.

It's been an eventful day. Have you been among the record crowd, or watching at home?

Record crowd

As expected, the attendance is a record for Judgement Day. There are 52,762 in the ground today - not bad for two domestic matches.

Gareth Llewellyn

Former Wales captain on BBC Radio Wales

"That is the bonus point try there for the Scarlets.

"They found the space out wide, Rhys Priestland put the ball over the top and Harry Robinson runs into the corner.

"That is the opportunity that they will keep finding against this Dragons side.

"Unlucky Priestland missing the conversion, the angle was very tight."

Try: Dragons 10-29 Scarlets - Harry Robinson

It's bonus point time for the Scarlets as Rhys Priestland floats a lovely pass to wing Harry Robinson after more pressure from the Scarlets' pack. The pass put Robinson over in the corner which meant Priestland has a difficult conversion which went narrowly wide.

Penalty chance: Dragons 10-24 Scarlets

Referee George Clancy changes his mind after seeing Scarlets flanker James Davies knock the ball on as the Dragons attacked.

He initially gives a scrum but then decides it's a deliberate knock on after watching the replay on the big screens.

Dorian Jones puts the kick wide.

Dragons are under the cosh

Scarlets are in control now, but a mistake at a ruck relieves the pressure on the Dragons.

The rugby is picking up, the tries are flowing, the game is heating up... so of course, you're all obsessed with the Scarlets' jerseys.

Bronwen in Pembroke: Not sure if I'm a fan of the yellow kit for the Scarlets...

Mark in Llanelli: Why, oh why, are Scarlets wearing that awful yellow jersey against a team in black?

Sue in Monmouthshire: Oh dear. Sofa harmony may not be restored. How can I support a team in a garish strip? Scarlets in yellow? Just wrong!

Paul in Pembroke: Why are the Scarlets dressed like lifeguards?

Lifeguards? Perhaps there is an element of Hasselhoff about these kits...

Ref in the firing line

S4C have just shown a referee's camera view of Ken Owens' try.

It confirms that an international hooker running at you at pace is a scary sight - no surprise George Clancy did not make the tackle.

Nick Webb

BBC Radio Wales commentator

"The Scarlets could be ending the Dragons' hopes of getting a playoff place.

"But remember - they did come back from a big deficit at home to Leinster a few weeks back."

Gareth Llewellyn

Former Wales captain on BBC Radio Wales

"The Dragons are appealing for obstruction, but I don't think there's any obstruction here.

"The Dragons are constantly offside, they need to get behind the line.

"The player couldn't get to him from behind because he was in a supporting role.

"It's a good try for Liam Williams."

Converted try: Dragons 10-24 Scarlets - Liam Williams, con Priestland

It takes two minutes for Liam Williams to underline Scarlets' new-found dominance with a slippery, weaving run from five metres out after a series of Scarlets phases. Another easy conversion fro Priestland and the Dragons - having started so well - are shell-shocked.

That's 21 points for Scarlets in five minutes play either side of half-time.

Red hot Scarlets

Scarlets have started the second half at a rate of knots.

They are back out - here we go again

Incredible purple patch from the Scarlets. The game's been turned on its head.

Get involved via #ScrumV

Things were slowing down a bit, weren't they? Fourteen points for the Scarlets in three minutes has turned things around, and twitter is going crazy.

Rhodri in Wales: Scarlets fan here and was 100% a block. Absolute joke!

Julian in Newport: He should have gone to TMO, block by the referee. Dragons won't be happy.

Nigel in Cardiff: Clueless Clancy - integral part of the game, but where's that interpretation in the rules??

Jordan in Llanelli: Poor tackling technique from Clancy!!

The funny thing is, all we saw in the first half was praise for Blues v Ospreys referee Nigel Owens. Looks like there isn't as much love for George Clancy, though...

HALF-TIME: Dragons 10-17 Scarlets

Well, it took off eventually. Scarlets did more damage in the last five minutes than the Dragons managed in the previous 35.

Class from the two Williamses.

But Mr Clancy's intervention in Ken Owens' try is a real talking point.

Can you award a try if the ball carrier has run into the referee? Apparently you can.

Converted try: Dragons 10-17 Scarlets - Scott Williams, con Priestland

And as the Dragons are still bristling, Liam Williams chips ahead and re-gathers before delivering a superb pass to the rapidly supporting Scott Williams who races over by the posts. Rhys Priestland has an easy conversion.

The watching Wales coach Warren Gatland would have been impressed by that - pure class from two of his Six Nations stars.

Converted try: Dragons 10-10 Scarlets: Ken Ovens, con Priestland

Ken Owens charges through the middle to score between the posts. But he ran into referee Tom Clancy on the way through and the Dragons complain they were impeded. But the try stands and Rhys Priestland converts.

Would it be fair to say things got a little bit heated there? You lot are loving this on twitter.

Sam in Cardiff: Wow.. I've never seen all 30 players fall to their knees gasping for air. What a mad two minutes.

Jack in Newport: Sick few minutes of rugby there.

Anthony in Llanelli: Even more end to end in the 2nd game... better bring on the oxygen!

Chris in Cardiff: Dragons fans all around me. Probably not a good time to say I'm supporting Scarlets!

First Karl was sneakily listening to the Blues on headphones at a wedding, now Chris has infiltrated the opposition. All we need is some one-liners and we'll have a spy movie...

Dragons attack repulsed

Tyler Morgan can hold a short pass from scrum-half Jonathan Evans deep in the Scarlets 22, and Hadleigh Parks hammers the ball miles down field where the retreating Tom Prydie is forced into touch. But the Scarlets can't make the most of the attacking opportunity.

Dafydd James

Former Wales and Lions wing on BBC Radio Wales

"It's been interesting, the Dragons set piece has been good and they've won many pens from the scrum, they've done a great job there.

"The Scarlets need to keep hold of possession, they're giving it away far too much. If they can do that they will be fine.

"It's nice to see the Dragons running like they are, right now they're a threat."

End to end stuff

It's chaos.

Scarlets blow a chance and when Priestland kicks to the corner Tom Prydie takes a quick throw he finds himself put clear by Tyler Morgan.

Prydie's wandering run comes to nothing, but when Scarlets clear the lines Dragons captain Rynard Landman has a charge for the line but is brought down short.

While all that is going on there's a fight underway, but TV replays show nothing.

That's more like it!!!

Penalty Dragons 10-3 Scarlets - Dorian Jones

Dragons retreat at a scrum but get the decision from Mr Clancy and fly-half Dorian Jones hammers one over from 43 metres.

His father - Dragons head coach Kingsley Jones - will be a happy man.

Normal service resumed

Dragons send a penalty high into the air under the stadium lights but Liam Williams gathers without any trouble. But then the Scarlets give away a scrum.

It took the first game a while to get going, perhaps this one will kick off soon.

Gareth Llewellyn

Former Wales captain on BBC Radio Wales

"That's what you want from your outside back.

"There was nothing obvious on, but Hallam Amos runs at backs, gets his offload in and it was simple hands into the corner from Tyler Morgan.

"Morgan's first try of the season, and it's easily converted by Dorian Jones."

Converted try: Dragons 7-3 Scarlets - Tyler Morgan, con Jones

Superb play by the Dragons sees Jack Dixon feed Tyler Morgan who crosses on the left. Was the pass forward? Referee George Clancy doesn't think so and Dorian Jones nails the conversion. Game on!
