I hate the loud music that's constantly played andconsequently avoid going to my seat until the last minute. The La Rochelle game showed, albeit with an above average crowd, the emotional power of the crowd singing only to be silenced by loud, slightly dated rock music blasting over the PA. Yma o hyd every time for me please!

lucky you guys don't have t sit tough a Super rugby game in Sydney or other Aus teams.... constant loud music at every stoppage in the game over the pa  until all the members complained a few years back as its getting so bad it was like watching basketball.... really pissed me off ...but then again if there was no music played out the pa at some game there would be no crowd sound ….. don't let PyS go this way 
I was there ...one Tuesday when the All Blacks came (and lost)

😂😂😂 Tommo has actually put on Facebook that ‘after 12 years he’s still getting blamed for the music & he’s never had anything to do with it”

In fairness yma o hyd. Only gets played a lot when we play the ospreys and our European games. My grandchildren come to every home game and they enjoy the music as I'm sure the kids in the family stand do . It's about getting the balance right.
I'm sick of it

I just wish that I could understand a word that the announcer is saying. Acoustics are dreadful.

My apologies to Tommo if he has nothing to do with the "Music" played before the kick-off.

I think Yma o Hyd should stay the words say it all especially after the attempt by many to get rid of us when the game turned professional. And I now quote Tommo " Would someone please tell Ffidel Bennett I have no say in the music which is played and my name is Tommo not Thommo!!"

Well it's good in a way to see many are happy with how it is used. Of course it is our song etc! but my concern is that over-using it as try music will have a negative impact. I'm not sure Munster fans would still sing the Fields if it was also used following every try they score but ........ In fact they sing it much less now anyway due to them singing it so much no doubt.

That is how I feel about Yma O Hyd, it reminds us all that the Scarlets are still here after "standing alone" and keeping our identity! Please keep playing both Yma O Hyd and Sosban Fach as they are our history and tradition!! Thumbs UpHeart
"YMA O HYD"

Yma o Hyd is fine, but the music in general needs to be cut. Its too much and the crowd get drowned out to the point of giving up.

At least we're not blasting out the dance tune "So Horny, Horny, Horny, Horny" like Glasgow were doing last weekend when they scored tries against Zebra LOLLOLLOLLOLShockedShockedShockedShocked
