Leinster thrash the Dragons in Rodney Parade, Glasgow survive red card
Pro14 Conference A leaders Glasgow Warriors overcame Alex Allan’s early red card to beat the Scarlets 29-20 on Saturday, while Conference B table-toppers Leinster were convincing 59-10 winners over the Dragons.
Glasgow had to play for over an hour with 14 men after Allan was dismissed for making direct contact with the head of Jake Ball when the score was 3-3.
However, the hosts built up a big second-half lead thanks largely to Brandon Thomson, who scored 24 of their 29 points.

Scarlets’ loss was also a boost to Leinster, who ran in nine tries in a 59-10 away thrashing of the Dragons.
Epalahame Faiva dotted down three times before half-time as Benetton Treviso secured a 22-19 away win over Conference B’s bottom side Southern Kings.
Two second-half penalties from John Cooney ensured Ulster claimed a narrow 16-12 home success over Cardiff Blues while Connacht edged to a 21-17 win at the Cheetahs.
