Post Toulon v Scarlets
Simply THE Welsh match of the weekend. Scarlets carrying the sole Welsh hope in the Europe Champions Cup again. Ken Owens might be back with Scott Williams, Liam Williams and Jake Ball. Jonathan Davies is expected to miss out with a hamstring injury.

Toulon seem to have picked up a bit of form and will be a daunting prospect again. Bring them on. Yma O Hyd.

I can't wait.

I posted this in the EPCR Round 3 thread, it applies here to :

Toulon have most of their prime players back.
Difficult to judge their performance v Bdx the weekend because of early red card for Bdx
THey got a BP but it wasn't easy and coud've lost it near the end .. try disallowed for Bdx.
Importantly Tuisova and Giteau still missing, Trinh-Duc also injured ... Bernard got mom @ 10
1/2P did well, his kicking taken for granted.
Nonu is now in prime form and it's taken him some time.
Some transition with Ford takeover they seem more intent on attack and better use of centres?
Toulon by 10 at least?

I would be staggered if this isn't the case. But we'll have a fun time trying to do otherwise.

Scarlets must contain Toulon power play,

They don't like it in their faces ... and an up in the air game plan with Ford takeover.

Beware, Nonu back to full form, ...

Toulon 1/2 backs potentially vulnerable ...

Can't see a Scarlets win .... but wind behind Pro12 this w/end

we're about to find out

Hope you choke on your bile, and they refuse you care in the nearest hospital, which in Wales is probably 50 miles way :D :P :D
