Leicester Tigers scored 30 second-half points to blow away the Scarlets and claim a 45-27 bonus-point victory in the European Champions Cup.
In a record 71st European tie to be staged at Welford Road, Leicester ran in five tries while George Ford contributed four conversions and as many penalties in a 20-point haul.
The Scarlets were only two points adrift at the interval – and led in the second period – but they were unable to add to their total in the final 20 minutes as they fell to their second loss in the competition.
Like their opponents, Leicester had lost their first contest, but an early Ford penalty put them ahead before Harry Wells’ try extended that lead.
