For the good of the soul, I wondered if anyone had any good stories of converts since last year's Pro 12 play-off; especially kids. I'm hoping there have been lots and that the buzz at local schools about Scarlets has increased a lot.

It may be that the story takes a while to evolve.
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.

I have been doing missionary work for years in North Pembrokeshire where there has always been a strong Osprey following. I think there is definitely a swing to the Scarlets now far more red shirts to be seen it's been hard work but I think we are on the up!!!!

At work there’s a fair few who used to say ‘your boys’ about the Scarlets that now say ‘we’, but truth is they aren’t converts, just hangers on

Agree Roy - good chance they could become converted in time (or at least come and watch one or two games a season)

I'll share this with you as I'm concerned for your soul! Since the final last year I have 8 x friends who now attend - 2 attend games when they can, 4 are brand new season ticket holders one of whom is a nine year old and the other 2 are returning season ticket holders from the old Stradey days.

I've found myself switching allegiances over the course of the past few seasons having been living here since last Spring and the better half's family being die hard Scarlets fans. Having been born and raised in Swansea I've always had a soft spot for Llanelli/Scarlets in the mid 2000's when I worked in Gorseinon rugby club as they were always the preferred team to Ospreys in the clubhouse

Took my 7 year old daughter to her very first Scarlets game against Glasgow, and she's not stopped going on about when can we go back Thumbs Up. She absolutely loved the barn, and was even trying to sing "Yma o Hyd" and "Sosban Fach" during the game. ClapClapClap
