Another classic piece of scheduling, Ireland v Wales football are playing at the same time as we play Edinburgh. Not an issue for me I might add, but sadly I believe it will be for others. In view of this I cant see a big walk up for this one.

So a big rallying call for all Scarlets fans, make every effort to get to this one if you can. Just 5 games left of the regular season every game is now critical to our play off chances. Massive game.

Have there been just 2 Saturday games at pys this season ? I'm seriously beginning to think that it's not just down to the TV and it's the scarlets themselves who actually prefer not to push for Saturday ko because the pys staff prefer to have Saturdays off

I'm sure we must check, but we do seem to get shafted. On the Saturday we were in Dublin the day before the O's had an away game which because it was on a Friday meant they got 6 released. Surely we would have known the Wales v Ireland game was on a Friday and therefore it was unlikely we would get any players released if we played on the Saturday, I wonder if we contested this fixture allocation pre season?
 
Now we're on Friday and it clashes with a big football international which is on TV. Again, did we spot this and contest it?
 
I hope there were instances where we contested proposed scheduled dates and had a result. I'd like to hear of some. One for the management next Crys 16 meeting I think.

About the only thing the media promote is Judgement Day. Bollox story last week about mergers ran and ran, and when Gareth Davies said he had no plans to reduce from 4 it was tucked away in the Wales Online article with little fan fare.

Simon Thomas does defend the Pro game but as for the rest, click bait trash writers.

Yeah Mark, big game that we have to get up for. Its been ages since the last game, no time for being rusty and building into the game, we've got to be up for it from the first whistle players and fans.

Just another example to illustrate how much of a poor relation the Pro12 is to both the Aviva Premiership and the French top 14.
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)
