FT: Scarlets 6 - 10 Ospreys

Hosts Scarlets lost against the Ospreys in the Pro12 derby this afternoon.

Despite going into the second half 3-0 down, the Ospreys put on an impressive defensive at Parc y Scarlets to secure their win.

The boot of Rhys Priestland put the 6 point score on the board for the Scarlets with Ospreys' Dan Biggar also scoring one of his own.

The only try of the game was from Ian Evans who touched down five minutes from time.

Final score Scarlets 6 - 10 Ospreys.

One of the Scarlets' most high-profile players is returning to the club next season, moving from Heineken Cup finalists Clermont Auvergne.

Regan King, 33, has signed a new two-year deal with the region he calls his 'spiritual rugby home'.

Scarlets Head Coach Simon Easterby said: "To have the quality and experience of a player like Regan King back in our squad next season will be a big positive for our region as a whole.

"Not only will we have secured a rugby player of real quality on the pitch who has played at the top end of European and French rugby for the past two years, but we've also gained the value of a professional who has such rounded experience which can be passed onto others.

"He's shown his inherent quality as a player in his recent performances in the Heineken Cup as well as the domestic French game and is a player any club in Europe would want in their ranks."

New Zealand-born King achieved his All Blacks cap against Wales at the Millennium Stadium in November 2002. He also played for Paris based club Stade Francais before leaving to join the Scarlets in the 2005/6 season.

He has appeared 143 times in a Scarlets shirt with 180 points.

King's last game for the Scarlets was against Cardiff Blues at home in front of a packed 11,000+ Parc y Scarlets crowd on May 6th 2011.

Scarlets look to build on winning start in Heineken Cup

Scarlets head coach Simon Easterby said he was "delighted" after the Scarlets won away at Harlequins in the Heineken Cup - but they now need to follow this victory with another next weekend.

"I'm delighted with the way we went about our business," Easterby said.

"It's vital that you win your home games in the Heineken Cup and if you can get points on the road then that's a big advantage."

"But this won't mean anything we don't get a result at home nest weekend. This was a big performance but we have to keep our feet on the ground."

Racing Metro - now featuring Dan Lydiate and Jamie Roberts - travel to the Parc y Scarlets next Saturday.

Fellow French heavyweights Clermont Auvergne - who were runners up in last season's Heineken Cup - are the final side in Pool 4.
