Scarlets were the only Welsh Region not to win their opening European fixture last weekend, and will be eager to rectify that situation this Saturday, when they welcome the Leicester Tigers to Parc y Scarlets in Round 2 of the Champions Cup. The Welsh team were unlucky to leave the reigning champions, Toulon, empty handed. They looked good value for a losing bonus point at least, but were denied by the boot of Welsh international Leigh Halfpenny, and a late try from Steffon Armitage, as the champions won by 28-18.

Toulon were at least denied a bonus point by the dogged Scarlets, scoring 3 tries to the Scarlets 2 tries. In a highly competitive Pool, bonus points might prove vital in the final reckoning, and Toulon may come to regret missing out last weekend. The Tigers travel to Wales with an outstanding record in the Champions Cup against their hosts. The two sides have met on seven previous occasions, with Scarlets only overcoming the Tigers in one of those games.

Despite a difficult start to the Premiership season as the result of being without 20 players, unavailable through injury, the Tigers produced a stunning first half performance against Ulster last week, and then defiantly holding on to win 25-18.
