Habana strikes again for Toulon

Bryan Habana scored a try as Toulon beat the Scarlets 26-3 in their European Champions Cup match in Llanelli.

French centre Mathieu Bastareaud scored Toulon's other try, while Welsh fullback Leigh Halfpenny contributed 13 points with the boot.

Meanwhile, Racing Métro will host their first-ever European quarter-final after a 32-8 bonus-point win against the Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens. Northampton are also in the play-offs, but will face a tricky game on the road.
