Perpignan stay top with bonus point win over Scarlets

Perpignan stay top with bonus point win over Scarlets

As we attempt to catch up with some of the better action from the weekend, these highlights are from a powerful Heineken Cup display by Perpignan as they beat Scarlets 37-5 at the Stade Aime Giral on Sunday.

There were some lovely tries scored as the Catalans made sure that Scarlets werent in with a chance of making the quarter finals as they scored five tries to one in front of their passionate fans. For the Welsh region, Scarlets Nigel Davies was disappointed to exit Europe like that.

"It was in our control but we didn't play well enough. We turned over too much ball and quality opposition like Perpignan will punish you. We knew coming here we would have to perform at the very top of our ability but we didn't perform on the day. But overall it was a positive campaign for us."

Their attention will now turn to the Magners League, where they lie second on the table.
"We have everything to play for in the Magners and have shown we can be resilient and bounce back after defeat," Davies added.

Perpignan did well to match Leicesters performance, taking maximum points to stay top of the table in Pool 5. They will face Toulon at home, most likely in Barcelona.
