Terrific RC Toulon ease past Scarlets into quarter-finals

Terrific RC Toulon ease past Scarlets into quarter-finals

RC Toulon came from behind to beat Scarlets – and progress from Pool 2 to the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup.

The French side led the pool going into the match, and Scarlets had won their previous three home games in European competition.

However, they had never beaten Toulon – and knew that they had to achieve a club first if they were to qualify for the knock-out stages.

The hosts started well, with a try in the first minute from Gareth Davies, and Leigh Halfpenny making amends for missing the conversion by adding a penalty nine minutes later.

After that, though, Toulon looked like they would be the only side to trouble the scoreboard, with first-half tries from Anthony Etrillard, Masivesi Dakuwaqa, Julian Savea and Bastien Soury. Anthony Belleau added two conversions and a second-half penalty.

Scarlets piled on the pressure in the closing stages, and their effort was rewarded with a 73rd-minute try from Steff Evans, converted by Halfpenny.

The match was marred by what looked to be a serious injury to Etrillard in the lead-up to Toulon’s second try.

Toulon have now won 11 of their last 12 pool games in the Challenge Cup, including their last eight in a row.
