Scarlets ran home four tries as they eased to a bonus-point win over Worcester in the LV= Cup.

Darren Daniel went over for the first try after a combined team move, before captain David Lyons charged through weak tackling for the second.

Worcester lost Graham Kitchener to a yellow card, and Daniel Evans and Rhys Priestland took advantage with tries.

Matt Cox and Kitchener helped Worcester reduce the 32-3 deficit with a try each but it was too little too late.

Scarlets coach Nigel Davies:

"I was really pleased with the boys.

"I think they've been building over the last couple of months to some big performances which we've had over the last couple of weekends.

"I think we are starting to move forward now as a team. It's great to see the strength in depth is growing with us.

"Rhys [Priestland] is fantastic. He really showed the after-burner to get in for that try."
