74- La Rochelle with one of the worst 22 drop outs I've ever seen but they've forced Scarlets into a mistake. Lamboley forces a turnover but the French side then miss touch.

TRY SCARLETS! Game, set and match! Shingler releases Scott Williams who gets the score. La Rochelle have run out of steam and Scarlets picked them off.

Conversion from Halfpenny, Scarlets 29-10 La Rochelle (76)

78- Hynms and Arias belts out around Parc y Scarlets.

Ken Owens quite rightly awarded the man of the match

80- Final play and Parkes takes the ball on into the 22, Scarlets looking for a third try to finish

TRY LA ROCHELLE! An intercept try scored by Boudehent. They deserve that. Mistake from Owens and La Rochelle go the length. 29-15

Conversion is added but it doesn't matter in the final analysis. FULL TIME: Scarlets 29-17 La Rochelle

A proper European knock-out game that one. Scarlets' defensive effort saw them home. Tries from Patchell and Williams mean that Scarlets advance to their first semi final in 11 years. La Rochelle's brilliant debut in the tournament ends at the quarter final stage

Scarlets will be away to either Leinster or Saracens in the semi final. Thanks for your company as ever, from me Rob Sutton, goodbye!
