Scarlets pic tickled me. Glad my game is off to watch this. I'd watch Neeport v Keys, bar the £12 price.

Very good win for the Scarlets. Serves Ospreys right for picking a back row at lock and a tighthead who can't scrummage in the 1st half. They will be lucky to finish above Cardiff Blues now.

I think so. Not overly keen on it, but I think I will be going. I've collected my ticket already anyway. Just have to book a night shift off

Reckon the Jack boys will have to get used to finishing below Cardiff for the foreseeable future. Very Happy

Probably the worst second half by the Ospreys I've seen at the liberty. Take nothing away from the scarlets, they totally bossed it for 40 mins and deserve the spoils. Jarvis starting?  King in the second row? Webb was poor. Sam Davies cannot kick to touch more than 10 metres. Awful...

I think the Ospreys biggest problems is their team is based around AWJ, Biggar, Lydiate, Webb and Tipuric. We have a few promising players such as Baldwin, Beard, King, and Baker. But in reality the rest of the squad are untested and / or erratic performers. You take out too many of the main 5 players and things go south quickly, were over reliant on them.
Our outside backs are basically an injury prone mess at the best of times.

On paper the Ospreys should of made a much better fist of this game, and the selections are crazy. Beard should of started, as well at Watkin. Dmitri Arhip is much better than Jarvis, and I've no idea why Tandy or indeed Gatland insists on selecting him.

Came home from the game very disappointed yesterday.
Really poor performance.
Sam Davies' kicks to touch were making about 10m ....what was that all about?
Well beaten in the scrum, probably due to the lightweight second rows chosen as some on here have alluded to.
Some of the line-out moves were terrible, no creativity, just catch and drive to be eventually out-muscled by the Scarlets pack and turned over.
Eli Walker has gone backwards big time, couldn't understand why he wasn't making the team in recent matches ...I can now.
Searching hard for positives, I think Webb had a decent game, creative and lively. I thought Lydiate stepped up in AWJ's absence and made some hard yards.

The ref seemed to not know what to do at many of the scrums and seemed to favour the Scarlets in many decisions, although I admit I am far from impartial. Why wasn't the Scarlets hooker carded for the slap? ....wouldn't have affected the outcome but just wondering.

If Jarvis was in the scrum I'd ping him every time, every other ref does, he's useless at scrumaging.
