Scarlets battle back to beat Leicester Tigers
THE Scarlets scured their first win in six matches as they defeated Leicester 40-19 in the LV= Cup on Sunday afternoon.
After just one win in nine matches, this triumph, even in a dead rubber, was a welcome one for everyone down west with crucial Pro12 contests on the horizon against Connacht and Munster in Llanelli.
The likes of Adam Warren, Rhodri Jones, Owen Williams, Gareth Owen and Kieran Murphy would have given head coach Simon Easterby plenty of food for thought with their performances.
Williams kicked seven penalty attempts out of eight to keep his side in contention after Leicester had led 19-15 at the break through three unanswered tries.

The Scarlets dominated the second period.
Williams pushed the Scarlets back ahead at 21-19, then Andy Fenby darted down the touchline for the first of three tries in a frantic final ten minutes.
Full-back Gareth Owen cut inside to race under the posts to seal the win and it was left to centre Nick Reynolds to have the final word when he caught veteran Ireland international Geordan Murphy napping to chase his own kick through.
