It was always going to be a tough task for the Scarlets taking on Conference A leaders Glasgow Warriors in their own back yard and the homeside put the West Wales region under pressure from the get-go.


With the return of the Heineken Champions Cup next weekend the Scarlets will want to put the performance behind them needing a victory at the Parc against Ulster next week to keep the European campaign alive.


Having received a red card early on in the first half Glasgow found themselves down to 14-men but the decision had the adverse effect spurring the home side on to a strong performance.


The Scarlets hit back late in the second half with two tries but it was Glasgow who walked away with the victory keeping Scarlets out of losing bonus point territory too.


Speaking after the game head coach Wayne Pivac said; “They thoroughly deserved their victory and if we’d have got there and robbed them at the end that would have been an injustice.


“Glasgow, down to 14 men, won the contact area through great body position and great desire. They threw themselves in to it and won a lot of the contacts. They forced turnovers and we weren’t that accurate today. They punished us.


“Our discipline let us down. It’s something that we pride ourselves on and we let ourselves down tonight.


“We’ve got six days to turn that performance around. At the moment we’re very disappointed with our form on the road and very happy with our form at home. That has to change if we’re going to have any chance of doing well in these competitions.”

Scarlets return to Parc y Scarlets on Friday 7thDecember to take on Ulster Rugby in the Heineken Champions Cup, kick-off 19:45.
