Benetton Treviso 3-10 Scarlets, Stadio Comunale di Monigo

Scarlets managed to overcome a red card to Morgan Jones as they edged out Scarlets 3-10 in the third round of Pro14 at Stadio Comunale di Monigo.

It took Scarlets 60 minutes to score the first point and it came from the boot of Angus O'Brien as the scores were levelled 3-3 before replacement Paul Asquith dotted down in the 69th minute and O'Brien improved to provide the Welsh regional side a seven point lead.

In the 74th minute, Scarlets lost Morgan Jones to red card for no-arms, high tackle but despite that Scarlets managed to hold on to their lead to complete a seven point victory.
