Scarlets re-invigorated their Champions Cup campaign with a dominant bonus-point win against Benetton in Treviso.

A week after struggling to beat a 14-man Benetton side, they scored four tries in the wintry Italian sun.

Two touchdowns by Gareth Davies and one each for Johnny McNicholl and Paul Asquith secured the bonus point inside 44 minutes.

Monty Ioane’s tries were a consolation as Scarlets briefly moved top of Pool Five before Bath face Toulon.
