Racing 92 qualify for European Qtrs

Casey Laulala scores one of his three tries

Racing 92 qualified for the European Rugby Champions Cup by hammering Welsh side the Scarlets 64-14 at Stade Yves-Du-Manoir on Sunday.

Parisian Club Racing scored nine tries during the one sided contest in which former All Black Dan Carter scored 19 points with his boot.

That gave them a points total of 22 from five games and meant that they could not be caught at the top Pool 3 by either Northampton or Glasgow, who were playing each other later on Sunday.

Scarlets, who managed two tries of their own in a free-flowing contest, lost for the fifth straight time in this year’s pool stages condemning them to a last place finish.

In the quarter-finals, Racing join Saracens and Leicester, who both ensured their qualification on Saturday.
