Pivac delighted with bonus point win

Date published: October 31 2015

Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac hailed his side's performance after they consolidated their position at the top of the PRO12 table with a 25-15 win over the Dragons at Parc y Scarlets on Friday.

With second-placed Munster also beating Ulster on Friday, Pivac was particularly pleased that his side secured a bonus point for scoring four tries in their Welsh derby.

"We're happy to have six out of six, definitely, but the bonus point is what we were after today as well," he told the BBC.

"No disrespect to the Dragons, but it was something we had sort of targeted and to get that was very satisfying.

"I thought we played pretty well in that first half and controlled things.

"But we fell away once we put some subs out there. We'll just have to look at that and make sure the guys coming on are very, very effective."

Meanwhile, Dragons boss Lyn Jones admitted he was irritated that his side couldn't take their form from the training ground into match situations.

"It's extremely frustrating," he said.

"We feel we're a team just as good as the Scarlets, if not better, but we can't translate what we do in the week to coming away from home.

"If we play at Rodney Parade it's not a problem. That's totally different to last season when away was good for us and Rodney Parade was hard.

"But it's soul-destroying to see that we just can't execute what we do in the week and that's a work-on.

"I thought Scarlets deserved their victory by a distance, but potentially we do have a side that can compete."
