The Scarlets West side never gave up and their defensive efforts did improve but the Ospreys were just too powerful for them to hold out.

Immediately after the restart the home side were off again. Running the length of the field, Cameron Jones crossed over for the Ospreys before Luke Scully again added a successful conversion.

It was Dewi Cross who rounded out the scoring for the Ospreys East side as he put down the ball in the corner for try number 7. The tough angle meaning Scully missed his first kick of the evening.

While the Ospreys were done with scoring tries, they weren't finished defending from them. The Scarlets spent the last quarter repeatedly trying to break through but the home side proved they were as impressive in defence as attack and held the Scarlets away from the try line and to a nil score.
