There’s something special brewing down in PYS these days. This squad of players and the coaches never fail to amaze me with their achievements. They won the Pro 12 last season after losing their opening 3 games without even a losing bonus point and being outside of the top 5 with just a few games to go. They have only lost 4 games in all competitions so far this season despite losing their biggest players for large chucks of time through injury and suspension.
They make 2 late changes in their back 3 for tonight’s game and if anything it strengthened our gameplan.
They now have their destiny in their own hands for Europe, still sit top of their conference in the pro 14, and still have most of their big players to come back into the match day squad, and all this without hitting their stride.
The whole team, coaching setup and board should take a bow.
Unfortunately, as last season has proven, when your successful, other teams come knocking on the door 🚪, trying to buy success. We are already losing Beirne, Barclay, Scott and Aled, we’ll probably lose 1 or 2 more, but I have faith in the coaches and the board to find suitable replacements who will help to further strengthen us for next season.
Just think where this team can go and what it can achieve if we keep the core of the team and more importantly the coaches together and continue to improve on it, season after season. The good thing is that with these performances we are going to be able to attract a higher class of player to the club as everyone wants to be associated with winning rugby and particular brands of rugby 🏉.

Bulbring’s contribution to the first try was superb, the long pass from the Patchell counter and then he was
there to support Cubby at the next downfield breakdown.
Let's get drunk and play ping-pong.

Bath is a proper rugby club with proper fans. Been up there many times and they admire and like us and I think it's mutual. Great win quality rugby but we need a win next week. Think Wayne will get them on track....Johnny m and halfpenny on bench? 😁

Another masterclass from Patch at 15, Cawdor had a great game too - a total menace and totally controlled and bullied the opposition, but Beirne is like 3 players in one. To score 2 tries down a back rower was incredible. 

As far as the Toulon game goes, how do you pick a back 3 when JMac and Steff return!? Prydie replace with Steff, but Asquith undroppable for me, especialy as JMac had an injury, ease him back from the bench 2nd half. 

Pivac will probably bring Patchell back to 10 and start Halfpenny but I would be tempted to leave Rhys at 15. Bar a missed tackle on a rampaging Banners and a couple of missed touch-finders, Dan had an excellent game too, not just from the tee. His confidence will grow and he doesn't deserve to be dropped either, but will probably be benched.

SPecial mention to our centres who raised their games and had their best games in a few weeks - flawless. Ken had his best game in a while too, fantastic!

Parting thought as well - Barclay shaking his head coming off, says it all. He's being saved for Toulon but wanted to stay till the end. Never seen a team enjoy playing as much as this. I certainly enjoy supporting.... Ymlaen!!

let’s aim for 10,000 per home game on a regular basis. What’s wrong with people? Is Llanelli so exciting on match day that there is something else to do! What an asset to the town and Carmarthenshire.

Knew we had the measure of them. Were outstanding 1-23. We have a proper team which is more than a match for anybody. Our pack is the most underrated in Europe. After this game everyone is saying how much we are going to miss Beirne. He was awesome today, but we have a good set of locks and we'll be okay.

Nobody mentioned Scott tonight, he was fantastic, how have we let him go to the Ospreys? what have we done for him to make that choice? We'll be okay without him but we won't be better. Hopefully we can send him off with an ECC winners medal. Underestimated how much work he does.

I did Wink ........ had his best game in a while, back to his ripping best, straightened the line at pace and fantastic distribution. Gutted he's going but we're so lucky to have Foxy to return. On the subject of Foxy I thought he was very elequant explaining the game plan and philosophy rather than the usual soundbites we hear.
