Davies happy with bonus.

NIGEL Davies insists Lee Williams' late try could prove crucial in the Scarlets' final reckoning this season.

The Scarlets slumped to their fourth successive away Magners League defeat to Connacht but claimed a crumb of comfort after wing Williams' touch-down in the dying seconds grabbed an unlikely losing bonus point.

And with the Welsh regions jostling for positions, Davies believes the late strike in the 16-10 loss may make a difference come the end of the campaign.

Davies said: "The bonus point could be very important and it was key for us. It has been a tough weekend for all the Welsh regions and there is nothing between us.

"It was important that we came away with something because it keeps us ticking over."

The Scarlets looked set to return from Galway empty-handed approaching the final 10 minutes following a dire display at the Showgrounds.

But Davies threw caution to the wind by emptying his bench and the drastic changes proved to work a treat as replacement Dan Newton's conversion claimed a valuable point.
