Scarlets v Ospreys Pro12 Final in DUBLIN !!!!

Post by No9 on Mon May 15, 2017 1:57 pm

Its possible, it really is.....

What an end to the season for the Welsh Regions if this happened. Ok, Scarlets didn't perform in the Champions Cup and the Ospreys failed at the semis, but if the Welsh regions could end up finalist in Dublin what a finish that would be....

So, come on Scarlet fans, get behind the Ospreys ... and Ospreys behind the Scarlets. It may be counter intuitive, but look at the bigger picture.

If this happens, I'm definitely Dublin bound... guinness guinness guinness Yahoo guinness guinness guinness

I saw today that Scarlets are the only ones in like 18 games to not lose to Sarries. Fair play to them for that.

Can't see either winning but they have done well to get there, especially seeing as teams with seemingly bigger budgets like Ulster haven't.

After the first month of the Pro12 weren't Scrum V predicting a Blues V Ospreys final as a realistic prospect? Sdaly i think even now a Blues V Ospreys final is as likely as a Scarlets V Ospreys final.

Sadly, I also think its likely to be a Mun v Lei final... BUT!!!

Scarlets are more than capable of beating Leinster and the Ospreys more than capable of beating Munster, so until the final whistle, lets have faith...

Ok, history says an away semi-finalist doesn't progress and win the Pro12. But that's history, not future events. Lets look at the positives.

Scarlets, have recently played some brilliant rugby, so why cant they build on this and beat Leinster. No reason at all.

Ospreys, since Judgement Day, have been p!ss poor.. Cant remember seeing such bad Osprey performances. But, they do have quality. They are a good team, so now is the time to turn this poor run into a win.

I'm not a betting man, but if forced to put a fiver on a final, I'd probably agree with most and predict an all Ireland event. But, until the final whistle there's hope, and in the Scarlets and Ospreys, we do have teams that could spoil the IRU party in the Aviva and for one, I'm going to keep the faith....

C'mon OSPREYS... and for an Osprey fan.. GULP... C'mon Scarlets...

Jake Ball is a big loss for the Scarlets.
I'd love to be wrong, but an all-Irish final seems likely.

Halfway there.  And I'm feeling positive (and still slightly drunk)

Ospreys team talk must be easier to make now. I got a feeling that they can do it. Come on Ospreys we are all behind you!

Yes it would be great SS, I just wish I had your confidence, our scrum really worries me for tonight, and some of the selections are way out of order, don't really know what Tandy and Gibbes are thinking of by selecting King, with Ashley and Leonard.

One MAJOR problem with the Ospreys winning tonight...

Have you guys seen the way the flight and hotel prices rocketed up after last night... A return flight, if you can get one, is now around £300, with ferry prices not far from it, and that's without a hotel, which has gone mental.

Could be looking at over £500, without a game ticket, beer money and a few Euro for the odd burger to soak up the Guinness...

Was really looking forward to a trip to Dublin, but not sure I can justify that impact on the bank balance Sad

That's it.. If the Ospreys win tonight, the game should be moved to Cardiff...

Got any room in your suitcase SS... Wink

I agree, was only joking about moving it to Cardiff.

Mind you, if Os make it an all Wales final, be interesting to see if they still manage to fill out the Aviva. Wonder how many of the Irish rugby fans with tickets still go. Hope they do, be a pity for the atmosphere to be flat, as can't see many Welsh fans being able to find the money needed to go.

It's bloody steep trying to arrange it last minute.

Saw a comment on Facebook, maybe the Irish will not turn up and sulk if th Ospreys make the final. But it's ok the Welsh are used to half empty stadia

Never it's an Hiberno-Welsh clash..

Hotel rooms now suddenly freed up with lots of last-minute cancellations this evening.

B&Bs are suddenly booked out though somehow....... Wales
