Scarlets had an early Try of the Season contender versus Bath in the Champions Cup on Friday night.
Taking on the Aviva Premiership outfit in what was their second European game of the season, Scarlets were looking to atone for their opening night defeat to Toulon.
They weren’t to come out with the right result in the end, but if they can keep creating the kind of try they managed on Friday they’re in with a chance in their next clash against Benetton.
While the Welsh side did lose 18-13 to their English counterparts, they can take heart from moments such as this below, which put them ahead of Bath inside 23 minutes.

⚡️ Pacey runs
Unfortunately for Scarlets the lead didn’t last very long with Bath taking full advantage of the penalties which came their way.
Wayne Pivac must now return to the drawing board ahead of a huge Pro14 clash with Welsh neighbours Cardiff Blues, which if Scarlets win means they’ll be guaranteed to stay atop Pool B for another week at least.
