London Irish stunned by the Scarlets

London Irish stunned by the Scarlets

London Irish had their Heineken Cup quarter-final hopes left in tatters after the Scarlets beat them 31-22 at Parc y Scarlets on the weekend.

The Exiles had a 22-10 lead which they blew as two second half tries from flanker Rob McCusker and two from Jon Davies set up the thrilling win for the home side.

London Irish now need a bonus-point win against Pool Six rivals Leinster this coming Saturday night at Twickenham.

"It was deja-vu, let's be honest about it," London Irish coach Toby Booth said.

"We're pretty disappointed by the unforced error count. We didn't take the opportunities that we crafted for ourselves. At 22-10 up, you expect to close the game out.

We had glorious opportunities to put the game to bed and we didn't take them."

At Twickenham, London Irish will need to deny Leinster any points, as well as grab a five-point haul themselves if they wish to progress as group winners.
