Scarlets 6-7 La Rochelle- Halfpenny penalty (11)

13- La Rochelle have found a weakness with Scarlets struggling under the high ball. A superb touch finder from Bouldoire puts the pressure on the Scarlets line-out

14- A blow for Scarlets, Asquith has taken a knock and needs to be replaced.

17- Very loose period of play as Botia misfields a Patchell kick through. La Rochelle trying to play out from deep but Scarlets force a turnover and another kickable penalty.

Scarlets 9-7 La Rochelle- Halfpenny penalty (19)

20- Excellent work from Scarlets, they force a turnover just as La Rochelle's maul was rumbling.

23- Real crackle to this game. Proper European knockout game. Crowd well involved too.

23- La Rochelle are going to lose Botia here, he has gone down off the ball, not convinced he was ever 100% fit.

25- Yet another penalty against La Rochelle, I wonder how long until Pearce looks for a card. Halfpenny to kick again.
