Scarlets 22 - 12 Ulster: Ulstermen fail to deliver during away clash

By Jonathan Bradley

Ulster have been defeated during their away clash with Scarlets in Wales.

It finished Scarlets 22 - 12 Ulster, with the home side rocketing to a lead early on.

Ulster were unable to take anything from their meeting with Scarlets in Llanelli despite the opposition playing for half an hour with a numerical disadvantage.

Scarlets were shown three yellow cards throughout the contest but, despite a score from Rory Scholes and a penalty try, the visitors could not gain a foothold in proceedings.

With the final kick of the game, Aled Thomas knocked over a penalty to deny Neil Doak's side even the consolation of a losing bonus point.

Scarlets started strongly, with Parkes almost squeezing in at the right corner after a flowing Scarlets counter.

But Rory Scholes just dragged his opposite winger into touch.

And it was fly-half Jones who kept the points adding up for Scarlets, putting three penalties over.
