  1. Goodbye

    Well what a day of rugby that was. Two brilliant games. Okay, one decent game and another that didn't pipe up until late into the second half.

    We've seen dent to the hopes of Ospreys' play-off ambitions and Scarlets seize victory against struggling Newport Gwent Dragons who have now lost 10 straight games.

    In the mean time, enjoy your Saturday night and thank you for joining us.

  2. Full-time

    Newport Gwent Dragons 16-21 Scarletys

    Too little too late for the Dragons but they do score a late consolation try through wing Adam Hughes with Angus O’Brien converting to give Kingsley Jones’ men a losing bonus point.

    Dragons flanker Ollie Griffiths man-of-the-match as he does his cause no harm for a Wales summer touring squad spot.

    The Scarlets go above the Ospreys to third in the Pro 12 table. A forgettable game.

    Moments of quality were a long time coming in this match, but the Scarlets' international class has eventually made the difference.

    After centre Jonathan Davies crossed for the opening try, a touchdown in the opposite corner from his Wales team-mate Liam Williams has made the game safe for the Scarlets.

  5. Try (Williams)

    Newport Gwent Dragons 9-21 Scarlets

    The Scarlets have wrapped up the game with Liam Williams enjoying a successful second-half.

    He powered over for the second try although his conversion this time hits the post.

  6. Newport Gwent Dragons 9-16 Scarlets

    Crunching collision as a tackle from Scarlets number eight John Barclay injures Dorian Jones.

    Replacement outside-half Jones has to go off the field to be replaced by Jack Dixon but Barclay stays on.

  7. Davies try against the Dragons

    And here's the try that gave Scarlets some breathing room against the Dragons.

  8. Penalty (Liam Williams)

    Newport Gwent Dragons 9-16 Scarlets

    Bit-part kicker Liam Williams proving more than handy with the boot as he slots over a penalty to restore the seven point advantage.

  9. Penalty (Angus O'Brien)

    Newport Gwent Dragons 9-13 Scarlets

    Angus O'Brien

    Newport Gwent Dragons bring on Dorian Jones with Angus O’Brien moving to full-back. The Dragons reduce the deficit with O’Brien’s third penalty after the Scarlets are penalised.

    This underwhelming match has not been decided yet.

  10. Newport Gwent Dragons 6-13 Scarlets

    At last some class from Wales and Scarlets centre Jonathan Davies. He produces a searing break before passing to replacement scrum-half Jonathan Evans.

    Dragons wing Adam Hughes is guilty of blatantly killing the ball and yellow carded by referee Nigel Owens.

    Scarlets pressure continues and Jonathan Davies strolls over for a try.

    Liam Williams kicks the conversion off the post.

  11. Try (Davies, conv Williams)

    Newport Gwent Dragons 6-13 Scarlets

  12. Newport Gwent Dragons 6-6 Scarlets

    Hadleigh Parkes comes on for Dan Jones.

    Parkes has played more minutes than anyone else in the Pro12 this season.

    None of those minutes as a fly-half, where he's playing at the moment for the Scarlets.

    Whilst you're here, who will kick for goal for the visitors? Parkes has not successfully kicked a penalty or conversion for the visitors.

    Stay tuned to find out!

  13. Newport Gwent Dragons 6-6 Scarlets

    No recognised kicker in Scarlets side now and it shows. Liam Williams steps up and kicks the ball dead from a penalty while attempting to reach the corner. Sums up how poor this game as been.

  14. Newport Gwent Dragons 6-6 Scarlets

    Outside-half Dan Jones has been replaced by a centre in Hadleigh Parkes.

    Walked off the field and didn’t look injured. Intriguing change if tactical.

    Wales scrum-half Gareth Davies also taken off with former Newport Gwent Dragons number nine Jonathan Evans coming on.

    All change for Scarlets at half-back.

  15. Scarlets' novel approach

    Newport Gwent Dragons 6-6 Scarlets

    Dafydd Pritchard

    BBC Sport Wales at the Principality Stadium

    With no entertainment on the pitch, Scarlets seem to be trying to create some by bringing on Hadleigh Parkes - a centre or wing by trade - at fly-half, replacing Dan Jones.

    An unexpected switch from the Scarlets. Maybe it will bring this stale encounter to life.

  16. Penalty (Dan Jones)

    Newport Gwent Dragons 6-6 Scarlets

    A thumping tackle from impressive Dragons flanker Ollie Griffiths on Scarlets prop Rob Evans proves to no avail as the Dragons are penalised.

    Dan Jones slots over his second penalty to tie things up.

  17. Newport Gwent Dragons 6-3 Scarlets

    Adam Warren has been forced off the field and replaced by Tom Prydie who is set to join the Scarlets next season.

  18. Newport Gwent Dragons 6-3 Scarlets

    Scarlets are dominant at the scrum and a penalty earned there almost provides the platform for their opening try.

    Dan Jones kicks to the corner for an attacking line-out but despite the wave of Scarlets attack the Dragons defence holds firm.

  19. Newport Gwent Dragons 6-3 Scarlets

    And the Scarlets get us under way in the second half.

    When was the last time the Dragons lead a game at the halfway point I hear you ask?

    Think of that historic rugby nation and their biggest club... The Bears... Loads of snow.. No?

    The Rodney Parade side were beating (13-0) and then beat (34-10) Enisei-STM from Russia in the Challenge Cup back in January this year

    That was also Kingsley Jones' last taste of victory, nine defeats on the trot since then
