A penalty from fly-half Stephen Jones two minutes from time earned the Scarlets a narrow 16-13 victory at Castres and secured the visitors a place in the quarter-finals of the Amlin Challenge Cup.

In a dramatic Heineken Cup Pool One contest, Jones' late kick and a 90-metre interception try from flanker Aaron Shingler claimed a deserved win for the West Walians and the runners-up spot which ensures their European season is not over.

Matt Gilbert - on his first European start - claimed Scarlets' opening try after Rhys Priestland's penalty goal early on for the visitors.

Castres hit back through two Rory Kockott penalties before Yannick Forestier crossed over deep into the second half and Romain Teulet added the conversion.
