Scarlets edge out Ospreys

Scarlets claimed their first derby victory in eight attempts with a 22-14 success over the Ospreys in front of a bumper festive crowd at Parc y Scarlets

The region had not beaten Ospreys since December 2007, but a first-half try from prop Rhys Thomas and 17 points from the boot of Wales fly-half Rhys Priestland saw them home in a typically bruising RaboDirect Pro12 encounter.

Ospreys had threatened to stage a powerful fightback after trailing 16-3 at half-time, with British Lions prop Adam Jones spearheading a dominant scrum and Barry Davies scoring their only try of the game. But at 16-14, Priestland landed two more penalties to ease the nerves of the 14,756 crowd - a record league attendance for the region.
