Scarlets edge thriller

Scarlets consolidated their place in second spot of the RaboDirect PRO12 by taking all five points from thrilling 29-28 victory over Edinburgh at Murrayfield.

The outcome hung in the balance until the final whistle but a late penalty by Rhys Priestland proved to be the killer blow, inflicting further misery on the Scots who have now lost four successive league fixtures and six matches on the trot in all competitions.

The home side had a try from Tim Visser and a string of kicks by man-of-the-match Harry Leonard to thank for their points, while George North touched down twice for Scarlets and was joined on the scoresheet by Nick Reynolds and Gareth Davies, with Aled Thomas landing three conversions and Priestland booting the vital three-pointer.
