Depends on the weather... should be an arm wrestle if wet, good practice for the Scarlets for their upcoming game at Bath.

This could well be a good game to watch if the rain stops on Sunday.

Sadly, the weather forecast says it's dry in Llanelli on Wednesday.

Damn.

Looking forward to Cubby Versus Tupiric. Is this the first time they will have played against each other??

Ospreys bench packed with match winners. I guess their expecting a close 60 mins and then they bring on the big guns to bring home the bacon.

The two 7s might well have played against each other, but Cubby wasn't one of them. :D

The ospreys that have played in Europe will make this a good game that could go either way.

The usual pro 14 performance and it's a comfortable 20 point win for the *fuppers* from down west

The game is a sell out apparently.

Ben John is wasted on the wing. He should be at 13 or even 12.

Hopefully the Scarlets will win of course, but that the Ospreys are truly competitive. STill, don't see what Tandy brings to the party but the players are also to blame for their recent woes.

If the going is good and not spoilt by the elements, I think there will be quite a few tries.
The bounce of the ball may decide the outcome. :D
To win is more important for us as Ospreys are already toast in the Pro14.

If the weather reports are on the ball then the Dragons v Blues match should kick off in reasonably dry conditions.
Not so with the Scarlets v Ospreys game, it'll either be snowing or be piddling down with rain.
They should rather bring forward kick off at 2:00 pm.
