Treviso moved into the top six of the RaboDirect Pro 12 by condemning Scarlets to a fourth successive defeat with a 20-10 victory.

Treviso took control of the match when the Scarlets were a man down after Rhys Thomas was sinbinned. Ludovico Nitoglia claimed a try and Kris Burton landed a penalty.

Welsh under-20 wing Liam Williams dragged the Scarlets back into the game with a try and Dan Newton added the conversion. But a try from Australian winger Brendan Williams clinched victory for the Italians. Burton finished up with ten points, converting both tries and bagging a second penalty.

The Scarlets made six changes to their starting line-up with Aled Thomas taking over fly-half duties and Newton switching to fullback. Williams was handed another start on the wing and Richie Pugh came into the back row for the injured Josh Turnbull.
