Scar­lets 33 Le­ices­ter 10

LE­ICES­TER Tigers were left with faces as red as the Scar­lets’ shirts as they crashed to defeat in their penul­ti­mate Cham­pi­ons Cup pool game.

A weakened Tigers team, with qual­i­fi­ca­tion for the last eight vir­tu­ally out of reach, were never in it against the Welsh­men who were far from at full strength them­selves.

The Scar­lets cashed in on Tigers’ er­rors through­out, with prop Rob Evans grab­bing two tries and Ken Owens, Johnny McNi­choll and Steff Evans also cross­ing.

A break on the right from Jordan Olowofela fi­nally helped put Tigers on the board with 13 min­utes re­main­ing with Will Evans and Mike Fitzger­ald scor­ing tries.
