Scarlets Are Aiming To Cement Their Place At The Top Of Pool B Of EPCR Challenge Cup Against Toyota Cheetahs


Scarlets are aiming to cement their place at the top of EPCR Challenge Cup Pool B as they welcome Toyota Cheetahs in Round 3 on Friday night.

The Welsh region has been in impressive form so far in this season’s competition, running in 11 tries to claim maximum points from their opening two games.

A 39-7 thrashing of Aviron Bayonnais in Llanelli kicked off their campaign before they held off Toyota Cheetahs to win 45-26 in Parma.

That defeat was a setback for the South African outfit, who won 21-16 at Section Paloise in their first-ever EPCR Challenge Cup game, leaving them fifth in the standings.

Toyota Cheetahs have been out of action since Round 2, while Scarlets have won twice in three United Rugby Championship games, picking up back-to-back victories in their most recent clashes.

The game at Parc y Scarlets kicks off at 20:00 (UK & Irish time) and coverage is provided by S4C, SuperSport and FloRugby.
