Morgan Stoddart finishes another great Scarlets team try

Morgan Stoddart finishes another great Scarlets team try

Scarlets went down to a heavy defeat against the Leicester Tigers in the Heineken Cup earlier today at Welford Road. Despite the 46-10 loss though, they did manage to score another great try for the second week running.

It's perhaps a bit strange singing the praises of a try that was scored before taking a 46 point hiding, but on it's own it was a great effort and they spread the ball and stayed in support for a number of pinpoint passes to go to hand. Last week it was Rhys Priestland , this time it was Morgan Stoddart who got on the end of the flowing team move.

After the first half it was all Leicester though, who scored some great tries of their own. Matt Smith, Martin Castrogiovanni, Ben Youngs, Thomas Waldrom, and Tom Croft all scored tries as they pulled away from the Welsh region. Croft scored twice himself.

Toby Flood did the rest with two penalties and five conversions as the home side put themselves about the park, featuring some clinical play from scrumhalf Youngs, and a few trademark charges from powerful wing Alesana Tuilagi.

Some of the other tries from the game will be posted in this rounds Best Tries compilation sometime during the week. If you spotted anything else this weekend that you think should be featured on the site, please get in touch .
