Our weak link is at 10. Rhys Patchell is no 10 and as for Dan Jones, he shouldn't be close to the team.
Liam seems to be off his best, hope he gets back his mojo before the 6N.
Will Boyd was imprsssive, He looks like a stronger version of James Davies. Watching the game at the beginning I thought he was James Davies.
All in all, it was a bad result considering we played 30 minutes with 14 men.
The kicking out of hand was atrocious for both teams.
Not all that unhappy to see a Wales team in the top three, just hope we can redeem ourselves in the remaining matches. I don't see why not, we have a good team led by a good pack and our backs outside of 10 are pretty good.

Pathetic comment on Patchell,has been very good for us since joining,it was always going to take time for him to settle in...Also Dan needs time he is only 19 for God's sake...


True, but Dan Jones' poor kicking became a real liability during the Junior World Cup in the summer.

Didn't he win MOM against the All Blacks for his tactical kicking game...

Not that I recall. But I do remember him missing some crucial penalties and conversions (including at the last minute) against Ireland that eventually lost them the game, having initially led 17-0!

I was at that game,you are right he did miss a few kicks but it was Jarred Evans who missed the last kick.Also Jones made the 2 Wales tries with a cross kick for Giles, then a break he made with an off load for Morgan -Williams to score

Say what you like about the Scarlets, but they coped MUCH better at the Liberty Stadium with three yellow cards than the Blues did at the same venue back in October with just one. This goes to show the gulf between the teams, and since the October match the Blues seem to have imploded.

Regarding the Blues, yes, they seem to have been poor sonce October. Real shame as they seemed to be going somewhere up until then. I hope they can find some form as a decent Blues team would be great.

Have you considered the effect of the actions requiring the yellows?
For instance, persistent sealing the ball would loose the opposition many scoring opportunities if in the right place etc.

Well they scored three tries during the ten minutes when the Blues had the player sent off in October, and took advantage of a red card in their away game in Glasgow to win there (bonus point and all) for the first time since 2009. As for the Scarlets, they have had a more-or-less full strength team so far this season, including for the Ospreys match, whereas last season they lost Liam and Scott Williams throughout almost the entire season, and other key players like James Davies, Gareth Davies, Rob Evans and Samson Lee also missed quite a few matches due to international call-ups, injury or illness. If they get their act together and keep up their good form, I do see them genuinely challenging the Ospreys and the Irish provinces to win the Pro 12.
