The Scarlets ran in three late tries to cement a 40-19 Anglo Welsh LV Cup victory over Leicester Tigers at Parc y Scarlets on Sunday.

The hosts were only two points in front heading into the last 10 minutes at Parc y Scarlets after young fly-half Owen Williams was on target with seven penalties.

But Andy Fenby, Gareth Owen and Nic Reynolds all crossed late on to give the Scarlets, who along with the Tigers were out of semi-final contention before kick-off, a pride-salvaging win.
