Bath back row missing Louw and Faletau could help Scarlets who field a good one?

Both teams look good. Should be a close match either way.

Weather prospects not too bad only 20% chance of precipitation.
Could be another Rhys v Rhys battle of wits.
Priestland won the first battle but did Patchell learn from it?
We will see tomorrow night.
I do think that Bath has the edge in the backline but Scarlets has the edge in the forwards.
An intriguing battle lies ahead.

Scarlets have been forced to reshuffle their team for Friday's Champions Cup tie at Bath after Leigh Halfpenny and Johnny Mcnicholl failed fitness tests.

Wales full-back Halfpenny, 29, has not recovered from a chest injury.

He and wing Mcnicholl were initially named for the match, now Rhys Patchell moves to full-back from fly-half with Paul Asquith switching to wing.

Hadleigh Parkes moves from the bench to take Asquith's centre slot.

However, Wales internationals Scott Williams and Gareth Davies both return from injury for a match Scarlets must win to keep their qualification chances alive.

Patchell is replaced at fly-half by Dan Jones.

Weakens the bench and this one will probably go all the way ....Hmmm...

Most interested to see how Obano and Underhill perform with England prospects ahead.

Underhill will tackle anything and everything ....not sure about broader aspects.

Davies is an integral aspect. to Scarlets play and capability to play their open game ..and I think Scarlets have the better balance with Barclay and Shingker ...

will be an important, even decisive , fulcrum for me ....

Bath are 6 point favourites on this. I'm a tad surprised by that, think it will be closer and could go either way but I fancy The Scarlets to win this just because I think they will win the breakdown where Bath were pretty rubbish v Wasps the other week even though they improved v Worcester last week. Scarlets with quick ball are very damgerous, hope it doesn't rain.

Friday 8:00 pm 36% chance of light rain predicted.

A good indication of which side is best, as both teams are desperate to win with bonus points. A big defeat would be very demoralising for either team.

The smart money is on Bath to win.
But I'm not smart enough as my money is on the Scarlets. :D
