Rugby-Scarlets win Pro12 title with 46-22 rout of Munster

May 27 (Reuters) - Llanelli Scarlets scored six tries as they crushed Munster 46-22 to win their second Pro12 title in a scintillating final at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Saturday.

Lions-bound Wales winger Liam Williams, who also kicked two conversions, began the rout with Steffan Evans, lock Tadhg Beirne and scrumhalf Gareth Davies also going over in a brilliant first half for the Scarlets, who led 29-10 at the interval.

South African-born Canada back DTH van der Merwe and James Davies scored second half tries for the Scarlets, who had won their first title in 2004, in a feast of attacking rugby.

Flyhalf Tyler Bleyendaal and wings Andrew Conway and Keith Earls replied with tries for three times champions Munster.
