Scarlets seeking quick double

Dan Jones, Scarlets' leading points-scorer in this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup

Scarlets will aim to keep the pressure on European Rugby Challenge Cup Pool 2 leaders RC Toulon on Saturday by completing a quick double over Bayonne at Parc y Scarlets.

The Welsh region trail Toulon by only five points after their fine 19-11 win at Bayonne last weekend.

Key facts

  • Scarlets have won five of their last seven home games in European competition, with the two defeats being by a single point.
  • Bayonne are without a win in their last 10 Challenge Cup fixtures, their worst run in the tournament.
  • Scarlets are one of only three sides with a 100 per cent goal-kicking success rate in the competition this season.

Scarlets keep last-eight hopes alive

Scarlets kept alive their hopes of catching Toulon at the top of European Challenge Cup Pool 2 with a thumping bonus-point victory over Bayonne on Saturday night.

Tries from Ryan Conbeer, Ryan Elias, two for Kieran Hardy, and one apiece for Angus O’Brien and Leigh Halfpenny ensured that the Welsh region won their third game of the pool stage to sit four points behind Toulon ahead of their huge clash in round five on January 11.

In virtual monsoon conditions at Parc y Scarlets,ย  Conbeer showed excellent footwork to control and pick up Steff Hughes’ kick through to score the opening try, although Halfpenny’s conversion was wide, his only error of the night.

After half time, Ryan Elias touched down after a big shove by the forwards for Scarlets’ second try, and within a few minutes Hardy finished off after Uzair Cassiem’s burst through the line for a third.

The bonus point was sealed when O’Brien raced clear and Hardy’s second came after some fine workย by Corey Baldwin to create the chance.

Halfpenny pounced on a Bayonne error for try number six although the clean sheet was ruined right at the death when Julien Tisseron crossed the whitewash.
