Frustrating to "lose" the 4 points in that manner but I would have snapped your hand off for even a draw earlier today.
Strange scheduling from the Pro14.The two top teams in the conference - Leinster and Scarlets, play each other in rounds 15 and 17, both during international windows.What should be two plum fixtures are devalued by international call ups for both teams.#SCAvLEI

Owens & friends ...

Away to Scarlets in dreadful conditions a draw is absolutely grand. Owens' calls were correct, stop complaining. We now have a far kinder run-in than they do, top of the table is ours to lose. #SCAvLEI— Ferris (@IWasAPirateOnce) March 9, 2018
I'll take a draw, keeps Leinster ahead with a better run-in, could've easily lost the game, gave away stupid penalties
So dumb from Leinster to play for clock and not kick out.— Ruggo (@ruggodotnet) March 9, 2018
That was just fecken rediculous. The number of silly penalties we gave away was dreadful. Wasted 4 pts........ glad this game is over! NO positives to take away at all. I'm going for a bottle of Malbec & a GIANT bar of Bournville chocolate lol 😉 P. S. Hope SOB is ok. Really feel for the tank tonight 😓
Well done all - win would have been nice but they’re not all that easy to come by in Llanelli. The draw keeps us top of the table.— Miriam Collins (@MiriamCol) March 9, 2018
I'll take away from home without the frontliners.
Showtime has his say again in the critical moments. #SCAvLEI— Brendan Hurley (@brendanhurley) March 9, 2018
Lowe once again can be hot and cold. Needs to work on defence. Still our run in is pretty good. Scarlets go to Munster next.

A single Pro14 match this weekend yet they still cant manage to produce a neutral ref for this match.
We were stupid to give that last penalty away 😡— Rebecca J Leggett (@rebleg18) March 9, 2018
Gave it away at the end. Hope SOB is not serious. Gutted for him, the disappointment/frustration evident on him as he went off.
What a weird match. Granted the rubbish weather but we certainly did our level best to lose that. Still can’t understand that non try by Nick McCarthy. Anyway, more than I expected at the start. Both could’ve won it and lost it 😳@leinsterrugby @HarpinOnRugby— Richard Mifsud (@Richmif) March 9, 2018
gutted for Sean, was so looking forward to his return to form and seeing him back for Leinster and Ireland. We are still top of the table and thankful for that. . Thankfully we are bringing TB back home, he is a power and hopefully will have a great future in Ireland. Scarlets will miss him!!
This thing about slating the ref after every single game is really tiresome— Paddy O'Brien (@Padzelli) March 9, 2018
Good result for Leinster. Hate watching games with sky commentators they’re so biased to UK teams
Can we have a rematch with the full internationals now? #SCAvLEI Good win @scarlets_rugby! 🔴— taylor richards (@taylorichards_) March 9, 2018
Very harsh penalty for accidental offside in their in-goal area following the charge down. TMO even tried to steer him towards a scrum. Normally a fan of Owens but how can you decide it's a penalty if you have to check with the TMO to see then it's hardly deliberate. That was a turning point in the match. Still if you'd offered me 2 points before the match I'd have taken it.
Picking and going with 5 seconds left on the clock in your own 22 is a bad idea. You reap what you sow. #SCAvLEI— Mark Oliver (@MarkOliver5) March 9, 2018
Jesus that was a turgid affair.
Jack Conan was good. James Lowe went from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Nigel Owens had an abysmal game but not in the way you’d expect me to say. I felt we got out of jail a few times because of his poor decisions.

DK had his best game for I can't remember how long. Owens poor, but look, we've been on his good side for some dodgy moments in the past. Decent result and I imagine it should be enough for us to top the conference now.
Perfect result neither team deserved to win errors and bad decisions all over the place. Still a better return for Leinster though. #SCAvLEI— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) March 9, 2018
