He seemed very emotional on his knees at the final whistle, with many of his team mates going over as if to console him. I know he had made the final big hit on AWJ but it seemed a bigger moment than that to him. Anyone shed any light?

Ed Kennedy really seems to be getting Scarlets Fever too.

I think what you saw was a release of emotion from a man who had given everything for the shirt. Respect. Clap
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

I was thinking similar. First real taste of a full Parc, first experience of the crowd very fired up, and a major derby game too. Those are all going to emotionally drain you, coupled with giving it all on the pitch. That must take its toll

I just thought he injured himself slightly. The players came over to congratulate him on the hit but he was still in pain. His celebration post tackle would counter my argument though, but maybe the adrenalin had dropped off by then?? Can't see someone getting so emotional about that.

He dropped to his knees and looked the sky before bowing his head, it all looked very dramatic and emotional, and it looked genuine too. A few players whispered to him as if to ask if he was ok.

Cant afford to over play him … been a long season for him so far 

I know injuries dictate his game time, but he will need a rest this season … 
I was there ...one Tuesday when the All Blacks came (and lost)

From a Scarlets perspective we could give him pretty much all of November off but how much of a rest that is will depend on how much he plays for Scotland in the AI's (you'd imagine that Townsend will be sensible with him). Next window for a rest for him would be when Shingler and Cubby and back and Cassiem is getting regular game time.
 
Realistically though he's looking at a very, very long season with the WC, lucky he didn't play too much in super rugby.
 
He's been great for us so far though, top draw.

That's good news... he's having to play more than is ideal, what with injuries and now Cassiem's ban. We need him to stay fit and well!
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Thomson? Guess that is unusual, without the "p".

Blade nailed AWJ with his patented Razor's Edge tackle to secure a Scarlets win against the Ospreys.

Buy that man a pint.
