Unfortunately probably true. Scarlets will need to beat Munster and Glasgow during the 6N window when we also play Leinster away and only have 1 easy game (Zebre)to keep in touch, whilst Ulster have a piss easy run through Feb and March with Glasgow the only top 6 team they are facing

Scarlets have a pretty decent international window team, so maybe they will do ok during this period.

15 Steff Evans, 14 Johnny Mc, 13 Steff Hughes, 12 Hadley Parkes, 11 Ioan Nicholas, 10 Dan Jones, 9 Jon Evans, 8 Will Boyd, 7 Ja Davies, 6 Arron Shingler, 4 Lewis Rawlins, 4 Tadhg Beirne, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Ryan Elias, 1 Wyn Jones.

Not bad at all.

Post Glasgow v Blues
The match really showed how much tactics have changed in the last year or two. Glasgow swift and exciting always looking to up the pace of the game when in possession and the Blues trying to match them manfully but not having the same speed and accuracy. Yes the Blues did well to hang on in there but much to learn from Glasgow. Glasgow could explode into action admittedly with so much possession but the Blues never looked to have the same kind of threat. Danny Wilson at least is a realist as is always shown by his summing up. Some great performances from a few of the Blues none more than Navidi and Dacey who were tigerish in defence and on the loose ball but Warburton looked slow and sluggish. Hardly looks worth his place in the Blues team yet alone Wales! Some matches these days almost look action replays but not when Glasgow are involved.

Blues didn't really offer much... lack of quality from the blues. Suspicion is Wilson wants to play a fairly traditional NH game focussed on the set piece and contact. Don't really have the players for it

Saracens manage it on a plastic pitch, so they can't blame that at least.

is Danny Wilson all that? Never seems to deliver the goods but gets the plaudits.

I would give Wilson a bit of time as been years of mismanagement at the blues, but yes jury is out.

Oh, I don't know. I never get tired of reading about how shockingly awful the Blues are.
And to think, with all that vast wealth of knowledge and genius backing them up, too . . .

Hard to say. He had a good start to the season but recently they haven't done it.

Blues don't seem to be a wet weather team...they like the 44-38 games.
