The Scarlets will look to secure their spot in the RaboDirect PRO12 semi-finals when they host Treviso at Parc y Scarlets on Friday night.

The Welsh region are fourth in the table - four points ahead of fifth-placed Ospreys - following a 24-6 win over Cardiff Blues last time.

The hosts have named an unchanged line-up to the team that beat the Blues, with tighthead prop Samson Lee back in his starting spot after having to be withdrawn at the last minute through illness last time out.

With the impressive impact the bench had in the Cardiff Blues game, Simon Easterby has brought back all 23 players who took the Scarlets to victory at home against the Blues.

Meanwhile, Treviso lock Antonio Pavanello returns to the starting XV to captain the side. He is back as a first-choice player, together with Giovanni Maistri and Bees Roux in the front-row and Manoa Vosawai in the back row.

The half-backs will be Edoardo Gori and Kris Burton, who will be playing at his last match for Treviso.

Doppies La Grange and Michele Capagnaro are confirmed as centres while Ludovico Nitoglia, Christian Loamanu and Brendan Williams will make up the back three.

What they said...

Scarlets forwards coach Danny Wilson

"This is effectively a Scarlets quarter-final and as players and coaches we're looking forward to another night of vocal support from our home crowd. It was great for the Blues and lifted the players and if we can do that again one last time at home, it's set to be a very memorable night for everyone at Parc y Scarlets on Friday night."
