Two.
I thought it was 1 defeat and a draw at the brewery field, but I’m not 100%sure

My grandfather told me back in the seventies that there would be an extra 5,000 in Stradey if he was playing

My father who watched the scarlets from the 30s to the 80s said the best player he ever saw was Lewis jones.

Good shout - never saw him play union, but did catch him playing league on TV - he was obviously a very classy player.

Mike Hercus
My favourite memory of Hercus was he made a clean break against wasps in the powergen cup final only to pull his hammy halfway to the try line 

I remember that !!

Boys you're also forgetting Joe Ajuwa and the much-hyped Kiwi 10 Frazer Climo.

Jason barrel the New Zealander who was being touted as an all black.   Saw him playing at Aberavon- he took a pass 5m from the line and fell over as he scored. He had to be helped up as he was buggered and so unfit.  He used to amble around the park .

I liked Kees Meeuws - actually, a very good player, but unfortunately carrying a  lot of injuries before he ever showed up in Llanelli.

No Problem. 

It's still a phenomenal record. I doubt there are many other (if any) players that have a 91% win ratio, who have played a decent amount of games for a team. Richie McCaw 'only' has 89% with New Zealand Smile.
