Despite what some would say, quite watchable. This stuff puts bums on seats, or watching adverts.
I fancy Halfpeny has lost form though?


I honestly think all the injuries have taken their toll, and he has lost both foot speed and confidence.

Slightly OT here, but he just passed to one of the opposition.

The guy was running in the same direction as him in the place a support runner would be coming.


My question, does all this swapping shirt colours affect the player?

Long long ago I always knew who was on my team because we always wore the same kit.

Match stats are revealing. Edinburgh missed less tackles, made more clean breaks and made only 10m less yardage but conceded 14 pens to the Scallys 6.

That red card really hurt them.

The statistics actually proved what I saw. The score really flattered Scarlets. They are still very rusty. Mistakes aplenty.

But think how many of them he knows and has played with.


Then include the Scarlets team :D


(I think he actually said to me - if you ever get the ball give it straight ot someone you know)

The Italian players seem to have little or no respect for the Welsh scrumhalves, or is it that they know that injuring key players is a real plus when our backs start to cut loose?

The telling stat is the 14 penalties.

Scarlets were comfortable winners and I don't think the BP was ever in doubt. Scarlets winning BP in every game at the moment, something they didn't do last year and this could be crucial when it comes to getting a home draw for the knockout stages.

No more 4 point bitch wins for Ma Boys, it's try time all the way at PyS these days. :cheers:

I think that one sentence posts made during the course of a game destroy the impact of the forum. When looking through the threads on a Sunday morning it can take quite a while to find something interesting, and worthy of a conversation.

BIG RED, I entirely agree with your reference to those damned annoying interviews which take preference over the ongoing match.

May be you are correct Langland, but you still have to filter through them which can be very boring, and time consuming.

I just look at the time of the post. And usually start reading at posts made when the match has finished.

Ha,

JOHN WALES has a point. Reading the match commentary after a match isn't that interesting. But as someone who occassionally contributes to match threads, I guess I'm like a number of Billy No Mates on here who comments on games when I'm watching alone - it can be useful to clarify what is going on...

As an aside, I note that sometimes my telly must have a delay frok matches as comments appear here ages before I see it on tele.
