Thanks for this.

Looking forward to Dragons v Glasgow, as Dragons have to make the fact they aren't hit as hard with missing internationals count. We also don't want to go on another losing run, after the disappointment of last weekend. I think we may get Leon Brown back for a bit of action. Bit of a worry for Dragons with no real number 8 and it will be interesting to see who gets picked instead of Dyer. Aside from that I am happy with Coghlan covering Roberts overall.

Interesting that all SA sides are playing away fixtures this weekend (before the 6Ns?).

We've finally hit a bit of form, winning 6 of our last 7 matches but we will likely be without our internationals for the visit of the Bulls tomorrow night so can't see us extending the run to 7 from 8.

Scarlets still look pretty good still.

Especially in the backs and the back five.

Big game for Ulster tomorrow, need to get back on track in the league especially since they have to take a trip to South Africa during 6 nations.

Hopefully last weekend will spur them on.

A lot of big games this weekend for teams pre 6 nations

Great for Culhane to be in line for a debut. Almost 12 months ago was putting in Player of the Championship performances for the Ireland u20s grand slam winning team as a number 8. Then his kidneys went into acute failure and he had to be hospitalised. He got back into the emerging Ireland side before xmas for a match in SA against Pumas. Now he might get his senior leinster debut off the bench.

Aitzol King is an elusive back 3 player.
Charlie Tector I'd argue is already a better prospect at outhalf than Harry Byrne.

Hooker is the potentially weak position with a couple pulled to the 6Ns squad.

Good win by Scarlets. Bit of a miracle too given how overpowered they were at the set piece. Bulls were often sloppy in attack though. Poor passes and some poor kicks were punished.

Hell of a win, to be fair. On some run now. I did enjoy their slump for a while mind. I wish every Welsh team well, but Dragons need somebody else to have a crack at being worst Welsh pro team Very Happy

We almost gave in to being the worst but we couldn't quite take it from you guys.

On a serious note we played really well & did well not only to hold on but to extend the lead at the death.
