We're in trouble here - need to get some territory.  Hope the coaches can sort out some of the issues at HT.
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

We are absolutely awful. Just hold on to the bloody ball. Trying countless globetrotters offloads and they simply aren't coming off and costing us territory possession and points.

Deserve to be 10.0 down.

Keep the ball, go through the phases, earn the right to go wide. It's simple stuff and we are incapable of doing it at the moment.

Shocking today, can't cope with the Benetton defence. Trying to throw the ball around before creating phases. Come on it;s basic scarlets rugby mun!

Very poor first half from the Scarlets, Must improve ball retention and decision making in the second half. Some very naive play today. They also need to show far more respect to the opposition - taking them for granted has gifted them two tries.
What's going on?

Worst 40 mins of the season, perhaps for 12 months. Simply atrocious in every facet of play. Benneton are right in our faces and we can`t handle it. 
In Pivac we trust

It's poor stuff we need so much more from the regulars - Tagh, Cubby, McNicholl, Asquith have got to start bossing it. Dan looks shaky and frustrated.

Need strategic kicking by Dinky to cope with Blitz defence

Hopefully the coaches will change the game plan second half and we will play far more conventional phase based rugby. We are trying to get on the outside but our distribution isn't sharp enough. Abandon that play territory and possession rugby and hope we can turn that into points.

We never play well after breaks and with team changes, our style of rugby requires familiarity and decision making under pressure and the rustiness of some of our guys is showing.

Treviso have caused us a lot of problems so far defensively we have to the them in a bit more and attack the fringes.

Benetton should be out of sight now. Scarlets defence is worrying.

Poor defending by Scarlets.  It's not going to happen for us today.
