Cardiff win a penalty as Jonathan Davies is penalised for offisde, but Jarrod Evans' attempt just swings wide of the far post. We remain as we were. 14-0 #URC


Cardiff come close to a third as a bullet pass from Smith puts Lane in some space. Liam Williams is up to the task, but Lane does brilliantly to find Nipper in support. However, the full back is brought down immediately and the ball is eventually knocked on. 14-0 #URC



Matthew Morgan runs back at the Scarlets after Gareth Davies kicks downfield, slicing through the midfield once again. With men over, a wonderful Will Boyde offload puts Lane in space and he shows composure to find Lloyd Williams on his inside to finish. 14-0 #URC



Sensational solo run by Matthew Morgan sees him skipping past a number of Scarlets defenders on the counter, bringing us to the 22. There is zip to the attack in these early stages and the ball goes to the opposite wing for Cabango to provide a cracking finish. 7-0 #URC
