Scarlets v Ospreys - October 2002

Post by Cardiff Dave on Thu 28 Apr 2016, 10:43 pm

Llanelli 62-6 Swansea FT.

"Llanelli showed little mercy against local rivals Swansea as they notched up eight unanswered tries in a hot-blooded derby at Stradey Park.
The All Whites were forced to play over half of the match with thirteen men as Gavin Henson and Dean Thomas were sent off for violent play......"

My mate just shown me this in the canteen. Real blast from the past. I think that was the match where Scott Gibbs came out with the 'They are going to try and hit us with cheatshots, so we are going ours in first' comment in the pre match build up?

I was at that game, Gavin Henson had this white hair do, he looked like a flower, he got sent off for apparently throwing a player into the advertising boards. It was mental there, the sospans were baying for blood and the Swansea fans were going bezerk.  Laugh

One of the, funniest things on the night though, was watching Stuart Davies in the commentary box, you could see the commentators in Stradey back in those days and he was absolutely livid. I do not know if I have built it up over the years in my mind but I could not here him, but he was there, with his mic and headphones waving his arms around and going nuts, his face was like a bulldog chewing  on a wasp. Laugh

Its more actually than apparently. Its not a matter of opinion, its a fact there is video evidence and all.

SS, I have seen the footage on tele over the years, "throwing" is a bit over the top, helping him towards them is more accurate, although a red card was right, even if it was for Hensons stupid haircut.

Watch the clip in the link.  If Garin were a ball he would have been thrown, the arms were in a throwing movement (1min 26 on the video)

Just looked at those links, what a haircut. What was he thinking ? 

Come on SS, it was hardly a throw, although it was a red just for causing the fracas. He knew what he was doing though.

Sow hat was the movement of the arms in that point of the clip?? It wasn't a dropping or dragging motion. Seeing as Evans was off the ground it wasn't a pushing motion either. So that leave only a throw left.

It was Llanelli v Swansea. Not Scarlets v Ospreys

I'm disappointed that Turk throwing never took off as i'd hoped it would. There we are.

The English tried reviving it in the 2011 RWC, but couldn't find any Terks so went for little people instead.

But drew the line at playing titanic on a plane, pretending the stewardess was the boat and their ice cubes were icebergs. The said only total tools would do that.

That was during the surreal CCS days. Many involved went a bit crazy back then. Me included.
