Post Munster v Llanelli
Could be the show piece of the season.
Ireland v Wales lets hope Scarlets don't implode but continue improving as they have done for the last few seasons.
Home grown talent coming to the fore.
I certainly hope that Steff Evans can play.
I know it's early days, but could Steff be a reincarnation of Shane Williams?

I've said for some weeks (maybe months even) that Scarlets are a rapidly improving team and possibly the sleeping giants of European rugby, and many here and even in Scarlet Fever have scoffed. All the same, it'll be a close game, but given how good Scarlets scrum generally is now and their clever attack, I think they might edge it.

I'm not all that confident. Munster shut down everything that the Ospreys could throw at them and always came back with a vengeance. Three tries to nil says it all.
Why they didn't score more against Ospreys may be due to the boys playing above themselves but not having the skill sets or coaching to get across the try line. It has been quite sad to see the Ospreys play in their last 5 or 6 games. Yesterday was not just a one off bad day at the office. The outfit needs a considerable overhaul from the top down.

Improving they are and in the top three of the pro 12, but having watched Sarries v Exeter n Tigers v Wasp yesterday where the intensity was incredible they will need to step up another gear if they are to challenge in Europe.

I'm confident we can do it as we seem to have momentum. Tough nut Munster though!

How many Scarlets fans going ?

Team deserves a big following.

Wouldn't bet on it, but I back Scarlets to shut that effing crowd up :D

Thrilled as a Munster fan to be in the final, next season how ever we really need to get some help with the back play. I dont buy this argument that Munster don't have the skill to do slick moves that you see other Pro12 teams do, in fact I'd say this is the best batch of backs Munster have ever had but what they need is encouragement to go out wide, with Chris Farrell coming in next season he could be the missing link in this Munster side. Not to get ahead of myself but if we keep going the way we are I have no doubt in my mind we will win a Champions Cup within Russia Erasmus's reign, to get to a semi final in your first season taking over a Munster side dejected after a dreadful season is some improvement but sadly they came up against Saracens, the team Munster aspire to be like in afew years and were shown that while they have done well there is still a LONG way to go!

Scarlets can play the game at pace and feel if they play to their best... scarlets win. But it's a one off game and performance on the day is all that matters

Evans is getting better, but he aint no Shane and never will be!

They said similar things about Shane in his earlier days ;)

Steff is only 22, got years still left in him. What I like about him and why I think of Shane is that he has the ability to read the game and the gas to be in the right position when it matters.

Just watched the game again on slo-mo, Shingler was also immense in the game, he was great on defense and attack.
His all round play was superb, a very underrated player is our Shingler. He put in a massive performance in the second half.
