I predict a high scoring game, with each team getting a TBP

Both teams are high scoring and both have leaky defences therefor they hopefully just keep running tries in against each other.

Good first 10 minutes, then lots of errors in the next 10. Blues need some possession and continuity before H/T.

Great finish from Tom James!

Blues doing great out wide.

Anscombe's passing and Patchell's pace into the line is giving a lot of width to the attack. Really coming together.

Was thinking that. Anscombe and Lee-Lo have the passing to play that game, Patchell and Williams are up there too.

Fish and Tom James have some real pace too. Not missing Cuthbert much it seems.

Also 3 open side in the back row really helps to play a fast game.

Commentator just saying Blues would be third if starting from Christmas. Really looking forward to next season with a stronger squad. Only problem will be missing Patchell :/

Penalty count too high :/. If scarlets can tighten up the game could be problematic.

Loving the enthusiasm from the Blues. Running into contact, desperate to carry ball and some smashing tackles.

Ref misses a blatant high tackle then gives the Scarlets a penalty for nothing.

Scarlets haven't been a high scoring team for years.

Great score by the one true club. Gatland and his mates were lovin' it.

I expected the West is Best brigade to win today - they've looked clueless to be honest.

That ball came off the Scarlets player, should have been a run in against the FB for Tom James

Very deserved win for the Blues as i thought they didn't get the rub of the green, also 3 tries to 1 speak for itself.

Not sure, think he must be injured.

Amazing that the Blues now have 3 decent tight heads in Dillion Lewis, Maafu and Filise. That's without the welsh internationals Andrews and Mitchell who have been very disappointing.

Yeah that's great. Also good that LD was wrong (again) about overseas players blocking youngsters.

Filise is surely off next season?!

Been saying that for years! He has been immense this season though, somehow still going strong near 40! Wouldn't be surprised if he is kept on, as he will no doubt not be costing much and is still putting in shifts

Filise has been nothing short of amazing, keeping the Welsh front row quiet despite playing with an average scrmmager on the loosehead side. His hit on Morgan Allen was quite something too.

Filise must be related to Phil Vickery!

Hasn't peaked yet. Give it another 2 or 3 years and he'll be awsome.
