Edinburgh were defeated by Scarlets in the latest Scottish rugby union match. Tries from full-back Morgan Stoddart and centre Jonathan Davies combined with 11 points from fly-half Rhys Priestland were enough for the Welsh.

Talismanic full-back Chris Paterson notched all the hosts’ points courtesy of a converted try and three penalties.

However, Scarlets took the points to move up to second in the table.

It was the visitors who made the brighter start and they had an early try-scoring chance.
