Scarlets satisfied with their strength in depth.

SCARLETS head coach Nigel Davies says they have enough strength in depth to extend their eight-game unbeaten run against Ulster tonight.

Their excellent win over the Newport Gwent Dragons last weekend took their recent record to eight games without defeat in all competitions and lifted them two places to sixth in the Pro 12.

They could keep the pressure on Cardiff Blues, who are directly above them, with a bonus-point win in Belfast tonight and Davies (pictured) is confident they have enough quality to pick up an away win despite having lost several key names to international duty.

"It's a big game for us, we are on a good run and we want to protect that run," said Davies.

"We know it is never an easy place to go but in the past we have always been very competitive out there.

"The ref will probably have a big bearing on the game out there but our boys are playing with a lot of confidence at the moment.

"Sometimes you have to be able to win ugly and we did that against the Dragons. These boys we have are coming through strongly."
