Edinburgh edge Scarlets clash

Edinburgh posted their first league win in nine matches when they took the honours in a rousing 26-23 contest with Scarlets at Murrayfield that featured several passages of exhilarating rugby and three yellow cards.

A touchdown by Dave Denton and a penalty try, plus a string of kicks by skipper Greig Laidlaw saw the hosts home against a Welsh outfit that had tries from Andy Fenby and Jonathan Davies plus an 11-point haul from the boot of Rhys Priestland and one conversion by Stephen Jones.

Both sides welcomed back their RBS Six Nations players, with the Welsh Grand Slam players looking to bolster the Scarlets' bid for a play-off slot, while the Scottish wooden spooners were desperate to halt a dismal losing streak.
