Little interest in this one, can't see anything untoward?

Interesting to see the coach resting key players, which is so necessary especially when one comes to the business end of the season.
So far this season Scarlets have lacked the cutting edge they displayed at the end of last season.
Liam and Cubby have been a big loss to the team. Boyd does well but doesn't have the linking ability and athletic capability of Cubby.
And Ha'penny is a shadow of his former self and is not in the same league as Liam.
Quite often he seems to be in two minds, maybe he is still trying to adjust to the Scarlets style of play.

It would also be good if the league could have actually managed a neutral ref!

Be glad you have any ref in today's climate.

Wales refs always favour the opposition teams because they do not want to be seen as biased.

After the frustrating 80 minutes of Cheetahs v Ospreys mistakes, let's hope Scarlets can lift Wales' hearts.

Connacht with a lot of ball, but going backwards. Scarlets defense up and in your face.

Try Connacht, surely.
Scott Williams playing beach rugby gives it away.
