A new date has been confirmed for the Scarlets’ rescheduled URC Welsh derby against the Dragons at Parc y Scarlets.

The round 10 match, postponed from January because of Covid-19, will now take place on Saturday, April 16 (live on S4C) with a 7.35pm kick-off.

Dragons’ matches against Ospreys and Cardiff have also been rescheduled.

A URC statement said: “Three games involving all four teams will take place between April and May and have been agreed in consultation with teams and the host broadcasters. Every effort was made to schedule these fixtures outside of the Six Nations window, which was a shared view of all stakeholders involved.
