When we think back to the pre season threads on the Ospreys, Dragons and Blues, there was a surprising amount of positivity and expectation. I'm not sure what that was based on , Corry Allen being built up as a big signing etc. Its the same each year.

What the Scarlets achieved last season was beyond expectation, the challenge is can they build on it and have they created a squad that people can watch, knowing that their expectation of desired effort and skill is a given, even if the result is in the balance against top sides. No welsh regions has really hit consistency, will the Scarlets be the first. Knock out stage in Europe would be a further step forward?


Stop posting good sense BS! ... it confronts wishful thinking and offsets the Welsh joy of eventual melancholy! :D

I agree! BS is just a spoil sport.
We are world champions until the reality kicks in. So why spoil the dream? :scratch:

Scarlets skipper and hooker Ken Owens will make his first appearance of the season at the Kingspan Stadium.

Jake Ball returns to partner Irish lock Tadhg Beirne in the second row.

Centre Jonathan Davies is set to make his first appearance off the Scarlets' since being named British and Irish Lions' man of the series against New Zealand in July.

With Leigh Halfpenny starting it full back, it means the Welsh region have three 2017 Lions in their match day squad.

That's a tasty looking Scarlets team, Ulster not so much.

Looks like a great opportunity to get a 'W' on the board just as long as them Irish buggers realise they should lose and don't spoil the party.

Martyn Williams being wheeled out again tonight....emabarrassing in his last attempt as a pundit, hope he doesn't let himself down again this week. I think that missed drop goal still affects him after all these years !!
Looking forward to Bouch's copy and pasting after the game ;)
