It was another drama-filled week in the Guinness PRO14 as Round 16 provided yet more thrills and spills to keep everybody entertained.

And we saw some of the highest quality rugby down at Parc y Scarlets where both the hosts and their opponents Ulster put on a thrilling contest.

There was also a moment to savour from a young Glasgow Warrior against Munster at Irish Independent Park.

Ryan Conbeer – Scarlets v Ulster

Scarlets had worked their way back into the contest after falling behind early on and Ryan Conbeer’s second-half score helped the hosts to a 34-10 triumph.

Collecting the ball just inside the Ulster half, Conbeer jinked past several Ulster defenders, including a great sidestep to evade Johnny McPhillips’ tackle and race through to score next to the posts.

The hosts didn’t look back after that superb score, running in two further tries to complete a fine victory.

George Horne –Munster vs Glasgow Warriors

Glasgow Warriors went down 21-10 at Munster but their sole try of the game was a thing of beauty.

Looking to wrestle their way back into the contest in Ireland – a sensational break from Lee Jones saw the Warriors carve their way through the Munster defence.

Jones then found Horne on his shoulder and the scrum-half was left with an easy run to hurl the visitors back into the reckoning.

Stuart McCloskey – Scarlets vs Ulster

Ulster may have lost in Wales but they were given the perfect start thanks to an incisive move after just two minutes.

The try was started by fine work from Tommy Bowe who was able to outjump Corey Baldwin and snaffle a Scarlets cross-field kick to launch a cutting counter attack.

McCloskey was the supporting cast and duly picked up Bowe’s offload before showing a turn of pace to burst away from the Scarlets defence and cross the whitewash.
