Newton boots Scarlets to victory

Fly-half Dan Newton kicked 19 points as the Scarlets got their RaboDirect PRO12 campaign off to a winning start with an impressive 32-9 victory against stubborn Italian opponents Aironi.

In an error-strewn match the Scarlets struggled to put away last year's basement boys, but Newton's boot plus second-half tries from prop Rhys Thomas and wing Andy Fenby ensured a satisfactory start to the campaign for the West Walians.

Naas Olivier responded with three penalties for the Italians.
