I was there and remember Frasier Clemo making an athletic catch over his head in the ingoal area to prevent a Racing try.

Could’ve been mistaken mind you.

Stayed in the nearby hotel that Racing used as pre match changing. Their presence meant a closed bar ☹️
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Maybe wrong but I think that was the first time we did a rendition of Flower Of Scotland for John Barclay pitchside at the end of the game.

Four supporters buses left Parc y Scarlets at 3am Friday morning.
,with the game on the Friday night. I don't think the lonesome bar person in the Ibis knew   what hit her when we all turned up. The stadium was the location of the Paris Olympics where the film chariots of fire   was based on. It was also where Benny won his first cap.   Epic weekend. .

I was there. An amazing game, and two amazing nights drinking with fellow Scarlets.

The trip where French men were singing ‘we all dream of a team of Samson lees....’

History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.

I was there, the 3am start to get to a game that started at7pm GMT was truly an epic endeavour by all who travelled. As ever Bus 1 was the bus to be on, party central.
It's not always about where you end up, it's about how you get there.

Wasn't there for the Scarlets' game - but I DID see Benny's first cap - one of the first substitutes in test rugby (maybe Wales's first? I forget) - came on very late for Gerald Davies, and I don't think he touched the ball! The ground was called Stade Colombes, back then.

(BTW - I don't think Racing 92 play there any more, so don't go to the wrong place!)
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.
