Rugby Union: Scarlets fear Knights may have the Touls of the trade; Mirror Sport STARTS HERE WITH HEINEKEN CUP RUGBY.

Byline: By MICHAEL SCULLY

SCARLETS coach Paul Moriarty last night described Ulster's handsome victory over Toulouse as "outstanding" - ahead of the Celtic rivals' meeting at Stradey Park on Friday night.

Llanelli also won their first round game in their pool but Ulster's first half demolition of the threetime Heineken Cup champions at Ravenhill has made Moriarty sit up and take notice.

And the former Welsh international is expecting a hugely confident Ulster in Llanelli this week.

"There is only one word for their performance against Toulouse - outstanding," said Moriarty.

"And anyone who can do that to a team of Toulouse's pedigree has to be brimming full of confidence.

"Ulster destroyed Toulouse there and every time Toulouse went in with the ball Ulster defenders smashed them.

"It is no exaggeration to say that Toulouse were well and truly shocked."
