The visitors took an early lead at the Cardiff Arms Park, through captain Nick Frampton.

Osian Thomas' conversion was off-target, but Scott Andrews' side would soon bounce back.

Benji Williams secured a quickfire brace, twice converted by Gethin Rosser, which saw Cardiff Blues South head into the interval with a 14-5 advantage.

Scarlets East seemed to have fought their way back into the game following a second half try from Caine Rees-Jones, but were immediately dealt a major blow, as Zach Lloyd crossed twice to seal a bonus point for the home side and put some breathing space on the scoreboard.

Jamie Howells put the cherry on the icing with a try in the final moments.
