North stars for Scarlets

The Scarlets maintained their push for the RaboDirect PRO12 play-offs with a hard-fought 28-20 victory over Newport Gwent Dragons at the Millennium Stadium.

The Llanelli-based region took their opportunity to pile the pressure on the Ospreys, who had the early evening slot against Cardiff Blues in the 'Judgement Day' Welsh double-header in the capital. The two regions are fighting for the fourth semi-final spot.

George North, with a brace, and Jonathan Davies were the try-scorers for the Scarlets, with Owen Williams kicking the rest of their points. Jonathan Evans and Dan Evans crossed for the Dragons.
